Agriculture is an integral part of the Afghan history and cultural identity. The practice was however significantly disrupted by decades of armed conflict, that charred the land and plunged its people into darkness. Today once again flowers of saffron, almonds, pistachios, figs and walnuts rise from the fertile Afghan soil. These flowers of hope sustain livelihoods and transform every aspect of society, including the dynamics between men and women. Our brand Mira Farms was created because women in Afghanistan have a voice, and it is time for that voice to be heard.
Afghan women are hard-working, strong and independent and they make a meaningful contribution to the economy. They work alongside men as equal parts and business partners. Mira has given women a platform to be seen and heard, so that they can inspire and empower others and draw them closer to the light, away from the darkness of extremism.
Our farms are spread across the country from East to West, in various regions such as Kandahar, Helmand, Kabul, Herat, Uruzgan, Zabul, Samangan, Kapisa, Ghazni and Nimroz. We represent independent female farmers from nearly every corner of Afghanistan, uniting them in the shared vision upon which Mira Farms was inspired.
