To name one, Shabana, 38 years old divorced women from Sialkot was going through a rough phase of life after her divorce. A mother of 2, Taimoor (12) and Nimrah (8) was left without any means of income since her divorce. She had taken refuge in her brother’s home where she was being consistently picked upon by her brother and her wife for being a financial burden on them. Having previously worked in a sports factory before her marriage, Shabana approached Akhuwat for an interest-free loan of $300 to start her own small scale business of tennis ball manufacturing. Two months forward, Shabana is doing well in her new business venture. She has not only been able to pay for her kids’ education but is also contributing a good amount towards her brother’s household income. With her business looking promising, Shabana is hopeful that not only will she be able to pay back her loan amount earlier than the agreed timeframe but will also be able to move out of her brothers’ house and rent a separate house to live with her kids in a life of dignity. Her son Taimoor aspire to become an airforce pilot while Nimrah wishes to become a doctor. Akhuwat USA, on behalf of their avid supporters, wishes Shabana and her children a very happy and prosperous future.
Beneficiaries of Akhuwats’ entrepreneurship based interest-free microloan like Shabanas’ dream of financial independence would have remained an uphill battle had it been not for enthusiast donors like you. Since 18 years of our work in Pakistan and changing one life at a time, Akhuwat USA is proud to have transformed the lives of more than 3 million people in Pakistan. Although we take pride in our achievements, there are still millions who await our help in lifting them from a life of financial exclusion to a life of well-being. Your kind donation as little as it may be can be a beacon of hope to those less fortunate.
