Woman opens automotive oil changing business in Kurdistan
By Sartip Othman
A woman in the city of Sulaimani enters the male-dominated car business by opening an oil changing shop for automobiles.
The shop has been carved out of a car wash business run by men in Sulaimani.
Shadi, the owner of the shop, says she is the first woman to start this business in Kurdistan.
She has employed three women, and is encouraging women to break into other fields which are thought to be dominated by men.
Shadi also believes opening this shop would make some women drivers more comfortable when changing their oil.
