But things are gradually changed a bit ignored everything by boosting her work.Rabiah said about her daily sales: This store has an income of about 5,000 to 10,000 Afghanis per day, and it will double near Eid and other occasions, but the amount she receives is not that much and that’s only about 6,000 Afs per month which is very unfair.
“Of course, this is not just my status, but lots of other women’s who I know as sales women that works in this situation,”she said.
“The insignificant salaries and security challenges of every day along with the contemptuous views of the people, are what I encounter and pretend I have not seen anything.”
