pakistan secretary on nm2h
- Categorized in: microfinance blog
On June 27, 2012, no mountain too high spoke with the Secretary of Industries of Pakistan's most populous province, Punjab. Secretary Dr. Shujad Ali, aware of the poverty that persists in a province with more than 90 million people, has last year supported Akhuwat by providing a 5-year Rs. 1 billion loan, and it is considering further support in the future.
Dr. Shujad Ali sent us a thank you email afterwards, from which we would like to quote the following lines:
- "It was a real pleasure to meet and exchange views with intellectually bright and balanced, culturally sensitive and good-hearted young men from the West like yourself. It is indeed rare to see young men so inspired and charged with a do gooding spirit that no mountain is too high against their will and determination."
- "Your interest in Akhuwat and its work as a workable model is much appreciated, especially given that some of its features do not sit well with the kind of economics that dominates thinking in your part of the world."
- "Your supportive observations about Akhuwat's strategic and managerial capacities vindicates us in the trust and confidence that we as a goverment have reposed in its capacities to deliver."
