We give our seasonal flowers. Violet, ball velvet. We will do the same this year. It has made a great contribution economically. We used to work for contractors in the old administrations. Money kazanwe were breastfeeding. We were left with the choice of either giving them the flower or throwing the flowers away. They were tying us. We used to have to give our flowers to continue our business life here, but now one-to-one purchases are made. Mansur President and whoever contributed, on my own behalf and Karşıyaka Thank you very much on your behalf. It has taken hold of us. Ankara Metropolitan Municipality stood by us.”
Ayşe Aydın (As Çiçekcilik): "KarşıyakaI have been in the florist business for a long time. I saw this application on the social media of our President Mansur Yavaş. There was a call for Ankara's flower to be produced in Ankara. This created excitement for all of us. ANFA General Manager Yıldırım Özer came to us and said let's have production. Ankara's flower is now produced in Ankara. We are very happy with this application. Previously, these works were done by large companies, but small tradesmen like us could not. Its economic contribution is enormous. We started to renew our destroyed and damaged greenhouses. We increased employment. While we were employing 5 people, we started to work with 15-20 people. It was bread for many. Supporting domestic producers is important, Ankara is growing. The flowers grown here are already more productive for Ankara. I would like to thank Mansur Yavaş and Yıldırım Özer very much. I want this project to continue.”

We started giving our flowers by consulting this practice at ANFA General Directorate. We are very happy because of that. We have never made such an agreement with the Metropolitan Municipality before. Apart from its economic contribution, this practice encouraged us to produce. Previously, these flowers were coming from abroad, but now production has started in Ankara. This also makes us happy. Its economic contribution is great, the number of our personnel has increased.”

There is also a contractual purchase guarantee. It has had great benefits. We would like to thank our President Mansur and ANFA employees.”
