(1/12) Zakia takes bread to a customer in of one the farthest areas in south of Kabul. The story is all about Zakia, an Afghan woman who runs a bakery and wants to work because she does not want to depend on anybody. She is starting her work every day at 4 a.m. and continues until late night, 9 p.m. Actually, this small business promises herself and her family a better living. Moreover, Zakia is the mother of three children, one daughter, Roqaya 11, and two sons, Mahdi 15 and Abdulhadi 13, and she has lost her husband in a traffic accident. #Kabul, #Afghanistan.
