ISLAMABAD: The Kamyab Pakistan Programme is based on the concept of “bottom-up” approach as envisaged by Prime Minister Imran Khan, a senior government official said.

During a meeting with Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation Dr Sania Nishtar at the Finance Division, Federal Minister for Finance and Revenue Shaukat Tarin informed Dr Sania Nishtar that for the sake of transparency the prospective beneficiaries will be accessed through the Ehsaas NSER database only.

The beneficiaries would enjoy easy access to agricultural and business loans at zero markup without collateral, he added.

Moreover, the Kamyab Pakistan Programme will provide a low-cost housing scheme for lower income groups, enabling them to own their houses. Thus, the programme will promote financial inclusion. The proposed programme is one of the largest of its kind in the world. It will bring at least three million families out of the vicious cycle of poverty in the next three to five years with Rs1.6 trillion to be disbursed through different products of KPP, the finance minister added.

Tarin also briefed about the basic parameters of Kamyab Pakistan Programme and underlined that NSER of Ehsaas programme is the premise on which the whole programme is based and would ensure transparency in the disbursement of funds and provision of micro loans to the targeted households accurately.

SAPM on Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation commended Kamyab Pakistan Programme for providing relief to the underprivileged segments of the society through better financial empowerment opportunities. She affirmed full support and facilitation on the occasion.
