Afghan designer uses ecommerce to go global

LOCATION: KABUL, AFGHANISTAN

Meet fashion designer Maryam Yousufi

Her clothes fuse Western style with traditional Afghan design

An e-commerce platform connects her with customers

Click.af launched in 2016 and began shipping globally last year

NAME: MARYAM YOUSUFI, BUSINESSWOMAN AND DESIGNER

"It was very appealing to me when I saw movies showing people in other countries choosing or selling clothes through an application. Fortunately, we currently have this platform in Afghanistan, and how good it is that I have clothes on it? As a girl from this country where many women have a hard time, I am delighted to have done this."

Yousufi works on her business at night
