IOM comments: 
The returnee has started his business in Qarabagh District of Kabul. As the business is located in a remote area hence we never managed to travel to the returnee's business location and in co-ordination with the program manager the monitoring interview was conducted via phone. During the monitoring interview; the returnee expressed his satisfaction regarding his business income and he was happy of his business progress. The returnee is committed and working hard to expand his business further.
