Agriculture Department Director Mawlvi Mohammad Wali Mohsan told Pajhwok Afghan News vegetable processing and jam making appliances worth 4.5 million afs were provided by the UNDP.

He said every vulnerable woman was provided 16 types of appliances worth 35,000 afs which will be used for making achar and jam at their homes and then they will sell it in the market.
