Khuram's Group's story
Khuram is standing in the middle with his hand raised in the group picture. He is a poor farmer from Ghayabi, a village in District Gujranwala in Pakistan. He is 27 years old and strives to increase the yield of his crops by employing an optimum mix of agricultural inputs. One of the biggest challenges Khuram faces is the ability to finance the purchase of agricultural inputs. Since he has no other options, he has to rely on middle men who pledge the farmers' upcoming crop against the loan extended, and pay lesser prices compared to prevailing market rates. Khuram's group is requesting a loan to purchase agricultural inputs which will release them from manipulation of these middle men, allow them to sell their crops at prevailing market rates, and increase their rate of return.
