Collaboration with SMEDA’s Women Development Wing
- Bank Alfalah has been able to establish strong ties with the Small and Medium Enterprise Development Authority (SMEDA) over the past many years. However, until recently we joined hands with SMEDA’s Women Development Wing to organize a dedicated awareness session for women entrepreneurs in Lahore.
- Our core objective was to spread awareness and provide handholding through our Non-financial Advisory Services Program and disseminate knowledge about SME financing to the thriving women business community.
- Women Entrepreneurs hailing from various sectors were subsequently provided guidance on the SBP’s RF and credit guarantee scheme for Women Entrepreneurs and PM’s Kamyab Jawan Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme respectively.
- Going forward, we aim to generate leads out of such interactive awareness sessions since the participants showed keen interest and are also linked to a credible authority like SMEDA.
