FREBA, THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Freba is 21 years old, married and lives at her father in-law’s house in Shahrak Ulia village of Mazar-e-Sharif. Her husband is a labor with irregular income.

She says, the financial situation of my family was not good at all. I started my higher education, but had to leave just after completing two semesters due to financial problems.

Freba added, “this all changed when I joined Hand in Hand Afghanistan’s Village Uplift Program and received a series of training including business development and microfinance. Following this I received six months apprenticeship training on photo and videography with the help and support of HiH Afghanistan.”

Freba now works in a studio and also attends birthday and wedding parties for photo and videography and earns around AFN 10,000 per month. “This is a new area of business for  women in our society and there is a real need for it as our society is very conservative. I hope to have my own studio one day and expand this business to more provinces.” says Freba.
