The “Small House” market project was opened in Majdi Mall in Sulaymaniyah city, Kurdistan Region, to support young people with small projects in an attempt to reduce the burden of unemployment on society.
Farhad Qadir, owner of the idea, told PUKmedia, "My idea came to support a group of young men with women and their small projects through establishing a market under the name 'Small House' to sell materials and handicrafts at cheap and competitive prices and give them an opportunity to display and sell their goods and benefit from the financial returns."
"Young people need jobs, especially graduates, because they are without work or employment due to the economic crisis and the lack of a government program for them and this is an opportunity for them as the rent prices in the market are very suitable for them to open their small projects," Farhad added.
"I hope this market succeeds and to open another branch in the city of Erbil, so that the project will be of more importance and provide more support to these young people."
Manal, owner of one of the small projects, told PUKmedia, "These projects are successful, as the markets are opened for us at a reasonable prices which enables us to sell the offered products at competitive prices."
"Our hopes from the government and cooperative institutions are to support such projects, especially the unemployed youth, so that they can establish a small project and start with a new fruitful phase," Manal added.
