Haji Bibi: Dreaming in mountains

Haji Bibi is a resident of Gojal Hunza. She works with handicrafts. She faced so many challenges when her husband’s travel agency closed down after 9/11.  Her children were very bright students and to continue their education, she had to take a loan from a local bank. She worked day in and day out, in fields, sold dry fruits, and it took her years to pay back the entire loan.
She had to start something to survive after the crises of 9/11. That affected thousands of small businesses. It’s then when she started working on handicrafts that helped her to bear her family’s household expenses. Started from a small room from her own house, she managed to start a company and which she called ‘Silk route handicrafts’. The company employs differently-abled women of the region, orphan women and women is dire need. The company meant more work, more struggle. This time, it was not just her, but a group of people, who she was trying to empower.
The work was intensive. Being in the region with no road access, away from the city centers, it was hard to bring in the raw material. Selling the final product was even a bigger challenge. Growing the business meant access to new unexplored
markets. Accessing to more people, which was physically impossible at this stage of her business.
It is said that when you want something with all your heart, the universe will conspire to reach it. WoMart project helped Haji Bibi get access to market, from her house. She was trained on e-commerce and marketing. She was given a smart phone and the necessary training to learn how to use it for business.
She is ecstatic that, her world just opened up. The physical barriers seem to not matter anymore.

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for newbie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Blog comments are more than just a vanity metric and while they’re not the only metric you should focus on, they are one of the best ways to get closer to your audience.
    It’s also important that I mention how certain blogs have been removing blog comments, Copyblogger did it and so did Chris Brogan.

    And when you have a huge audience like Copyblogger and Chris Brogan do, the time required to moderate comments gets crazy – from a business stand point it’s a huge investment and it makes sense for them to switch off comments.
    The truth is that while this may work for some blogs, it won’t work for all and I’m not quite ready to give up on blog comments just yet (let me know where you stand on this in the comments below – I’d love to hear from you).
