Amir Sohail, a 35 year old man, father of two lived with his family in a slum of Gujranwala. He was very distressed when he contacted Seed Out, asking for a loan to start his own business.
He used to work as a factory worker but unfortunately, the factory remained closed most of the time due to shortage of energy. His income through the factory was very unreliable. Hence he rented a rickshaw as an alternative source of earning. But as his children were growing, so were their needs. The money was never enough, Amir and his family continued to drift into poverty. The expenses kept increasing and the family couldn’t even afford to pay the rent of the house. Times were so hard that he Amir had trouble providing education to his children.
