Shakoor's story

Shakoor is a 39-year-old man who has been running a low-cost private school to help the destitute children of his community. The aim of the school is to foster an environment of respect. Since the school’s building is old, it needs urgent repairs and maintenance. Shakoor has requested a loan of PKR 200,000 to repair the school’s building.
