Hi, I am pursuing the 5K Fundraising Walk on 1st March, hoping to raise enough funds to initiate an entrepreneural women's program in villages of Pakistan. My aim is to start up a program to help 10 target women initially to establish an entrepreunerial base program to give these women empowerment and means to earn their own livings. Being a woman, I understand it is very important for women to be financially independent. As IMF pointed out that 50% of work force in underdeveloped countries are not productive. Following the Grameen Bank's successful model, i aim to establish such economic zones whereby women can operate their shops and be able to receive small financing. Each women can be started off with $2,500, hence my initial target is to reach only 10 women.

Success Story: A woman who had lost both of her parents had approached my partner for financial help. She was asked what she can cook best, and upon her choice, a small eatery was opened with some plastic furniture and she well on her way to sell her goods and more. Not only that, she has been keeping a part of her income in the savings bank. Being impressed from this, I conclude that if one woman can do this, why not search more in the society.
