Challenges for Business in Remote Afghanistan

This is a photo stu­dio in the remote province on Bamyan, in cen­tral Afghanistan. Since they are far away from major cities and the cap­i­tal Kabul, they have devel­oped skills that can help them fix prob­lems of their equip­ment and machines that they are using with­out hav­ing to travel and bring their bro­ken machines with them. For exam­ple, this photo stu­dio owner fixes his own pho­to­copier and printer when there is any small prob­lems with it. If they need to replace any parts then they ask a dri­ver who trav­els reg­u­larly to Kabul to bring that to them and then they would replace it by them­selves.
Imped­i­ments to road trav­els stop them from trav­el­ing too. Taliban’s check points on the way from Bamyan to Kabul is one con­cern for busi­ness peo­ple in Bamyan, for exam­ple. In win­ter the roads are snowed under and impos­si­ble to travel on. The cost of the road travel is also high. So those are some of the chal­lenges that busi­ness peo­ple in Bamyan and other remote provinces are fac­ing and the have to develop rel­e­vant skills to trou­bleshoot prob­lems in their areas of work.
