Livelihoods – Mirpur

In Mirpur, the most common livelihoods for Afghan refugees are as daily wage labourers and carpet weavers.

Afghans residing in city are normally able to find employment, particularly in the textiles business, small shops, scrap dealers or running restaurants. However, Afghans living in more remote communities are in a poorer economic situation. In all areas, it is almost impossible for Afghans to find jobs in the public sector.
