PMIC for long has been a proud supporter of women’s empowerment, with its 82% active borrowers out of the total loan portfolio, being women around Pakistan. Women’s empowerment has been on top of PMIC’s priority list since the beginning, as it elevates them financially, economically and socially.
Kulsoom Bibi along with her daughter started their own embroidery business from home with the initial loan amount of Rs. 20,000 from PMIC’s borrowers. With time and strong conviction and determination she has influenced the lives of 100 young women in her community by making them economically independent. She taught them the skill and helped them in establishing their own domestic workspaces. Today, these women with the help of PMIC and Kulsoom Bibi are successfully running their business and supporting their families and making a greater impact on society.
