AGHAEZ is a leading consulting agency dedicated to Afghanistan’s economic and social development. We provide specialized services to start-ups, micro businesses, and SMEs.
Deep Understanding of the Afghan Market:
We are able to provide actionable insights to our business clients, as well as plan and implement detailed training for entrepreneurs, because of our own experience as entrepreneurs in the Afghan market.
We operate our own commercial businesses, we run events sponsored by major corporations, and we regularly interface with Afghan Government officials and institutions that set economic policy.
There are both challenges and opportunities when it comes to working in the Afghan market, and we serve our business clients and trainees as an experienced guide.
Extensive Local and Global Network:
AGHAEZ has extensive experience working with local and international partners to accomplish its objectives. AGHAEZ founder and President Ahmad Fahim Didar has worked on Afghanistan’s economic policy development with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the International Trade Centre (ITC), European Union (EU), and the US Agency for International Development (USAID). In Afghanistan, AGHAEZ has full-time staff members in five major provinces, access to a pool of 250+ business consultants and trainers across Afghanistan, and is able to coordinate resources to implement projects in all 34 provinces.
Experience with Marginized Demograpics:
While operating a business in the Afghan economy is not easy for anyone, certain demographics face additional challenges. These demographics include Afghan youth, women, internally displaced people, and returnees who have been repatriated from abroad.
AGHAEZ has implemented training programs that target these and other demographic groups that require specialized training programs that consider their unique needs.
Ability to Undertake LargeScale Complex Assignments:
AGHAEZ has trained hundreds of startups across ten provinces in Afghanistan, published detailed research on Afghanistan’s startup ecosystem, and organized social and professional events that thousands of Afghans have attended.
As AGHAEZ has achieved success undertaking larger and more complex projects, our faith in our abilities has been validated. In the years to come, we hope to continue to take on challenging assignments and exceed the expectations of our clients in the process.
