Women economic empowerment is one of the important issues in the world nowadays and it also consider as a focused priority in Afghanistan since 2001. Governments of Afghanistan, donors and international NGOs have implemented several projects in order to bring changes on women situation in the country. The government of Afghanistan with financial support of United States for International Development (USAID) have developed a program for women named Promote Partnership which was covered four projects (Women Leadership Development, Women in the Government, Musharikat and Women in Economy). WIE budget was 71.5 million USD which was completed in 5 years. This research paper focuses on WIE project which focuses women entrepreneurship and micro business development only in Kabul province. I have come with 20 interviews from women entrepreneurs which WIE project have covered them to support their businesses and entrepreneurs. The main questions in this research are How intervention for economic empowerment affected the women situation and How the promote partnership influenced women economic empowerment in Afghanistan Therefore I selected qualitative method to describe the situation in a better way.
