Micro Financing Programs: Updated February 2017

This program has four components.


1) Interest free loan for establishment of small businesses (Rozgar Schemes) :

We have launched this program in Sindh and Rawalpindi. We pay loan to the poor jobless people to establish their business. The amount disbursed to each person is Rs. 15,000 or more. With this money they can start Sabzi shop or karyana store, milk selling point, donkey cart, buy Rehri or cart to sell stores and make a living. They are asked to pay back this amount in easy instalments so that the money can be given to more needy. A total of 18 families have been helped in Sind so far. In the same way we have started giving loans to poor people in Pir Widhai area of Rawalpindi for business. 11 people have been given loan till now here.
