Naheed

Meet Naheed

I am Naheed. After my husband passed away, I was left in debt and alone with 2 kids. I didn't want to grow opium. I grow saffron instead and am now happy. One day I hope to build a good future for my kids!






Shafiqa

Meet Safiqa

I am Safiqa. My husband passed away and I raised our two daughters by myself. I am a proud saffron farmer. My youngest daughter will go to university next year and through saffron I am paying for her education.





Nasima

Meet Nasima

My name is Nasima, I am a war widow working in the saffron fields with Safaroma. Now, I am making more money than before because Safaroma buys directly from my co-op with the women I work with. I am so glad that I do not have to work two extra jobs anymore. I now get to spend more time with my kids who get to see more of me at home.

 


 

Suraya

Meet Suraya

I am Suraya. I lost my husband in an explosion so I'm alone with 6 kids. I had no land or education so I couldn't work. I now work at a women’s collective doing everything from cultivating to packaging saffron. I am determined to ensure that my children, especially my girls, study hard at school.
