My name is Aqib Raza and I run a small general store for the last five years. One year ago my father got severely sick and I had to spend extra money on his medication. This brought considerable financial burden on my business and I was left with no money to re-stock my store. This situation resulted in low profits and soon my store became almost empty. I was in extreme distress when a relative told me about Akhuwat’s interest free micro-loan scheme.
I applied with hope and got a loan of PKR 25,000 from Akhuwat. This amount helped me in re-stocking the store and now I am earning a reasonable amount. I just cannot thank Akhuwat much for giving a new lease of life to my business and making me hopeful for a better future.
