New Market for Afghan Farmers: Local Potato Chips



Sora’s dream is to manufacture Afghanistan’s first non-imported potato chip, serving a demanding population and providing Afghan potato farmers with a new market.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are farmers in Afghanistan who grow potatoes, but potato chips are imported from other countries. This business will provide jobs to farmers and create manufacturing jobs as well.

How will this project solve this problem?

Potatoes grow across Afghanistan. Potato chips are loved across the nation. Connecting the two brings an additional lucrative market to Afghan farmers, and a national product to Afghan consumers.

Potential Long Term Impact

Purchasing high quality potatoes will greatly help farmers to enhance their cultivation and factory production processes will offer hundreds of jobs, especially for Afghan women.
