She said this incident made her so restless that she vowed to empower women.

She said that there are two problems of poor women who have art and skill, "What to make and where to sell?" IIWA solved these problems."

IIWA is an NGO of the women and more than 3000 women are manufacturing 150 products with high quality.

"It is very impotant to open avenues for them specially to promote them", Uzam said, "We do not want our customers to do charity since the product manufactured by these women conforms to the international standard and quality at competitive price."
