The Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday marked the gradual end of sanctions and something Iranians have long been waiting for.

The agreement between Iran and six world powers has led to what Iranian leaders are calling a "post-sanctions era." In the long run a stronger economy means more jobs and less poverty for the country, and for that its residents are celebrating.
