We're committed to Afghanistan's most important resource — its women.
Women make up 80% of our company’s workforce. For them, Ziba is more than a job. We're often their first taste of financial independence, continuing education, and the development of skills to secure a better future. These are the stories of just a few of the women who make it all possible.
The plant manager at Ziba's primary facility in Kabul, Mehrya was born the daughter of a diplomat, which afforded her the rare opportunity to receive a formal education. First in Tajikistan, where her father was posted; then later in Afghanistan at Kabul University, where she graduated with a degree in journalism. Now married with a young daughter of her own, Mehrya joined Ziba in 2017 where she oversees all of the staff — both men and women alike — and acts as Deputy General Manager.
Opportunity is the greatest gift.
