The agreement was signed by Chief Finance and Digital Officer, MMBL, Sardar Mohammad Abubakr and Chief Operating Officer, PPAF, Mr. Nadir Gul Barech, under PPAF’s Growth for Rural Advancement and Sustainable Progress (GRASP) project, working to accelerate sustainable development in the region. Senior executives from both organizations were also present on the occasion.

Myriad enterprises are working at micro, small and medium levels in the country that have the potential to catalyze sustainable economic development at the grassroots level but they fall short of their goals due to lack of access to financial services. MSMEs based in rural areas are particularly unfortunate in this regard.

MMBL has financed thousands of micro, small and medium businesses across all provinces. The recent agreement with PPAF is also an extension of the bank’s long-term commitment to promote financial inclusion and equitable economic growth in the country.
