The magic of Akhuwat lies not in interest rates, but in compassion, solidarity and equality.

The Vatican News, is a digital news and information platform providing updates on the activities of the Pope, the Vatican, local Churches, and inspiring news from around the world. Akhuwat Islamic Microfinance (AIM) was recently fortunate enough to be the subject of an article, published online in the world news section of the Vatican News website. Written by Robin Gomes, the article details Akhuwat’s humble beginnings, journey of hope, and mission to create a poverty-free society built upon the principles of compassion and equity.

It is truly a great honour for Akhuwat to be recognised for its work by the Vatican, as well as the Pope himself. As global head of the Catholic Church, and sovereign of Vatican City, Akhuwat is humbled to have been acknowledged for its poverty-alleviation efforts in Pakistan by such an esteemed global figure, and hopes to continue to inspire many across the world with its story.

Akhuwat’s core values dictate that in order to truly alleviate poverty, all segments of society must be uplifted; the marginalised, the impoverished, the downtrodden, and the minorities. To this end, Akhuwat, and Akhuwat Interest-free Microfinance (AIM) has worked tirelessly to improve the livelihoods of each and every community in Pakistan, no matter their colour, caste, or creed.

Akhuwat would like to thank the Vatican News for their kind words, and even kinder actions, by choosing to feature Akhuwat in their recent article.
