Two Afghan sisters have opened a restaurant in Bamyan, which is currently the only restaurant in the city that is fully managed by women.

This restaurant was opened eight months ago by sisters named Aziza and Zahir Haidari.

The restaurant managers say that five women work in this restaurant and the guests are Bamyan residents and tourists who go to Bamyan to visit the attractions of that province.

“Women in every field - be it economic or political - must play their part and be active,” said Zahira Haidari, restaurant co-manager.

“When tourists from Kabul and other provinces come to Bamyan, they also visit the restaurant,” said Aziza, restaurant co-manager.

Bamyan, which is a destination for thousands of tourists every year, has a need for new restaurants. In addition to the restaurant opened by the two sisters, there are several other restaurants and hotels in Bamyan.
