To help develop small and medium-sized businesses in the Afghanistan’s remote Badakhshan Province, USAID supported 25 female entrepreneurs in establishing a Women’s Business Centre in the Wakhan Corridor.  Once part of the famous the Silk Road, this mountainous and relatively secure region is becoming a popular destination for foreign tourists interested in Afghanistan’s history.  This summer the women saw their first sales of local products to the Wakhan’s new tourists.  The project hopes that these women will be able to produce a greater range of products targeted at this rapidly growing ‘high end’ market.
