The Empowerful podcast was created to share the profound stories of other founders and influencers who are changing the world for good. Together, we can amplify that change. We live by the motto of an old African Proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” We hope you enjoy!

In this episode of the Empowerful Podcast, we sat down with the Founder and CEO of Tahmina International. We chat with her about the inspiration behind starting Tahmina, what are the hurdles with being an export business in a war-torn area, and how she is working to empower women through new business opportunities. Tahmina (derived from the Persian word tahm, meaning strong & brave) is an international brand with a vision to export transformational products from different conflict areas of the world.
Their maiden project began in Afghanistan with one of its best luxury items: saffron and saffron-infused teas. Tahmina seeks to connect local farmers and women with international markets, and help develop industries that can be alternatives to the illicit drug economy.
