Telenor Microfinance Bank - Pakistan leading microfinance institution- entered into partnership with Thardeep Microfinance Institution recently. Thardeep is a leading nonprofit institution working for the poverty alleviation of the marginalized people in the rural areas of Sindh through safe and secure digital disbursement of credit and their repayment.
The aim of this partnership is to provide loans and make repayments in an easy and quick way, so that it can help the poor people in meeting the financial obligations. Further, it is also conceived that using the medium of Easypaisa for the disbursement and repayment of loan will make life easy for the people living in the under developed areas and it helps the unserved people to get a small share in the regular earnings. With the help of easy paisa, more people can have the financial support even in the far-flung areas of rural Sindh. These areas include: Tharparkar, Umerkot, Dadu, Jamshoro, Mirpurkhas, Sanghar, Hyderabad, Nawabshah, Naushahro Feroze, Tando Allahyar, Sujawal and Badin.
