Agriculture main source of income

Agricultural is central to economic growth and development in Pakistan, with an overall Gross Domestic Products (GDP) share of 25 percent.
Although the ownership of land and modern agricultural machinery is in the hands of few Pakistanis, the industry has generated numerous indirect employment opportunities for farmers and others alike. Punjab is considered as the headquarters of the agricultural industry, after which comes Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh. Balochistan mostly barren with extreme temperatures and a scarce water supply has the lowest contribution to the agriculture industry.
Microfinance banks in Pakistan have empowered several people to eradicate poverty from their lives. Khushhalibank continues to provide entrepreneurial employment opportunities to those who wish to bring a change in their lives.
Eidan a resident of tehsil Dera Murad Jamali district in Balochistan was born in a poor household, which forced him to take financial responsibility for his large family from a very early age.
His lack of education did not discourage him instead it motivated him to find employment opportunity to secure his family’s future, so he started an agricultural business in his small town of Goth Haji Abdul Razzaq Umrani.
For several years, Eidan invested most of his time and money into his business. Later Eidan decided to improve his business by injecting more capital. Thus he applied for a Khushhalibank loan.
Eidan’s dedication, hard work and commitment, along with Khushhali loan helped him in alleviating his family from poverty. With the help of the loan, Eidan was able to re-establish his business and was now earning a handsome annual salary of above Rs 200,000.
He is respected by his family, community and peers and is now able to send his children to school to pursue an education and secure their future.
