Through the ITsAf2024 project, I take concrete actions to connect Afghan artisans and small farmers who are unable to access international markets independently. My goal is to sustainably increase the incomes of these Afghan artisans and farmers and improve the quality of life of their communities, helping their micro-businesses to expand, and also involving Afghan citizens who have immigrated to the buyers' countries, thus giving them the opportunity to participate in the project as my agents. The main farmers' products will be dried fruit & nuts. My Afghan staff carefully selects the best products, which are then exported to the Emirates where they are packaged in full compliance with the basic requirements established by the regulations of the EU and other non-EU countries in which they will be sold. They will be sold on consignment in Italy and other countries (Brazil, Mongolia, Bahrain, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Canton Ticino of Switzerland to name a few) in supermarkets and online shops, while the artisanal 'non-food' products (also sold on consignment) will only be exported to Italy and other EU countries. As part of the ITsAf project, I will mainly be involved in the trade of figs, apricots, raisins, almonds and pine nuts. While the "non-food" artisan products will mainly be hand-woven carpets, leather goods such as bags, clothing accessories such as scarves and traditional Afghan clothing (especially women's clothes), which are attracting some interest in several of the countries involved in the project. A significant part of profits from the project will be reinvested in increasing the production capacity of small Afghan farmers. Italian equipment and machinery for drying and packaging fruit (and vegetables) will be bought and given to rural Afghan communities. This will improve exports to neighbouring countries such as India, Pakistan and Turkmenistan.

Do you want to sell Afghan dried fruit & nuts in your city, but don't have enough money to buy the first batch?
No problem, I will provide you with dried fruit & nuts on consignment.

Are you a manufacturer or seller of packaging machines for fruit and vegetables and would like to enter the Afghan market?
I reinvest ITSAf profits into the purchase of your equipment and donate it to rural Afghan communities.

Do you want to promote and sell Afghan handicrafts in your country?
I put you in direct contact with Afghan artisans and undertake to purchase the items you are interested in and deliver them to you on consignment.
