AKHWUAT FUNDRAISING APPEAL ( 30 SEPTEMBER - 04 OCTOBER )

Give little but
give often

OUR LENDING METHODOLOGY

At Akhuwat, our loans are relatively small, but their impact on the lives of the poor are huge. Depending on the loan product, they range from PKR10,000 to PKR100,000. The capital injection uplifts local economies and has a positive ripple effect in poor communities.

Today, our unique model is changing the way people look at microfinance. It’s been studied at universities and adopted by other NGOs. Our Executive Director and board members are often invited to global platforms to share Akhuwat’s success story.

We’ve been hosted by the United Nations, Oxford University, Manchester University, and many other international institutions. Board members have also presented lectures and facilitated panel discussions at various Islamic conferences.

FILLING OF FORMS

FIRST MEETING

The FIRST MEETING is held at the applicant’s home along with his/her peers. We verify their application information a second time and obtain additional information to complete the case.

SECOND MEETING

Explains the benefits of repayment – new loans dispersed with loan repayments. The cycle of helping the needy helping themselves continues.
