Village Arab Solangi is a very small village comprises of 80 households. Poor of the poorest community lives here. Their main source of income is bases on rented agricultural land due to which their means of earning are very limited. They lives in bush houses. Although ELI Foundation has provided low cost house for 13 households but the majority still in waiting list. Due to limited earning, they are facing sever problem of malnutrition. There is a need to provide them other source of income.


We will provide micro credit to the above said community for agri inputs, livestock development and enterprise development. The micro credit will be provided to the women so that they can earn extra bread and butter for their families and can improve their life style. Mostly, men work in the agricultural land due to which men are not considered for micro credit. Women are good managers in financial issues and it is our experience that they are more effective in micro credit.

Long-Term Impact

The submitted project has long term impact in its theme. Once the micro credit injected in the community, the beneficiaries i.e. women, will increase their income through business activities starting from small scale, ultimately converting to the medium scale and Large sale. This can be happened through injecting more investment which they can easily handle from their some share of profit. More investment will increase their sale and the profit will be automatically increase. (Revolving Fund)
