Afghanistan has suffered from war and conflict in up to 40 years, when hundreds of thousands have been killed and millions driven on the run. The fighting has had a completely devastating effect on Afghan society with uncertainty, widespread poverty and lack of basic social benefits in large parts of the country.
Of the total population of just over 35 million people live more than one third in extreme poverty, and over six million are dependent on relief.
The Afghans are extremely resistant, but in need of trade, jobs and income.
