Lahore, May 09, 2014 (PPI-OT): Buksh Foundation, an impact-led microfinance institution in Pakistan has made inroads in creating a self-reliant society by providing microfinance loans to women, individuals and societies in eradicating poverty and creating micro entrepreneurs.

The initiative brings together principles of business and development of independent societies to meet goals of poverty eradication and creating micro entrepreneurs across the country.

Hence this financing is creating impacts at the grass root level in order to create a self-reliant society by providing microfinance to individuals who lack access to formal banking sector”
