Khudmukhtar - a-micro-finance-initiative working in Pakistan with envisions to eradicating chronic poverty/hunger through agriculture-based revolving livestock model based on "Form to Table" approach. Khudmukhtar invests in rural people, empowering them to reduce extreme poverty, increase food security, nutrition and strengthen resilience. We empower rural families to turn hunger and poverty into hope, dignity and prosperity - but our approach is based on revolving livestock model.
The poorest, chronically food insecure households especially women members, with irregular income and little or no assets are often excluded from development interventions including microcredit. When they do receive the assistance they are rarely able to improve their conditions enough to maintain long-term sustainable livelihoods.
Khudmukhtar combines support for immediate food consumption with revolving livestock asset base to kickstart an economic activity and provides, skills training, market linkages to adopt value addition practices under the value chain perspective. The model gives recipients an 18-month period to develop sustainable livelihoods & graduate out of extreme poverty and hunger to address Millennium Development Goal # 1. The model includes carefully sequenced interventions.
