*𝗕𝗹𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗚𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗜𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁-𝗙𝗿𝗲𝗲 𝗟𝗼𝗮𝗻 𝗨𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗳𝘁𝘀 𝗣𝗼𝗼𝗿 𝗛𝗼𝘂𝘀𝗲𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗱𝘀*

Three years ago, Ms. Surata's household in District Tharparkar was found to be below the poverty line in a survey conducted by Thardeep Rural Development Programme.TRDP decided to provide her with a grant under National Poverty Graduation Program. Surata planned to start a small livestock enterprise. Subsequently, she received a grant of five goats 🐐worth 60,000 rupees. With time and care, the number of goats increased to 20, including 7 males and 13 females, three of which were milking goats. Surata says that she used the milk to make dahi (yogurt) and tea. She sold 7 male goats for 300,000 rupees and used 250,000 rupees of that amount to build two concrete rooms🏡. Previously, Surata's house was made of thatched-roof huts 🛖 which had caught fire and burned completely.

Surata says, "Thanks to #TRDP, we received the initial five goats. By taking care of them, their number increased and we saved the profits. My husband had no additional resources to earn money to cover home expenses.The earnings from the goats helped us cover home expenses. With the remaining 50,000 rupees we had previously saved, we repaired our cart for 35,000 rupees."

Surata says that their family then took a 50,000-rupee interest-free loan from Thardeep and added the remaining 15,000 rupees from their savings to purchase items to sell on the cart for 65,000 rupees.

Surata expresses her gratitude to TRDP, Ministry PASS, Govt of Pakistan 🇵🇰 and IFAD for their support.

Ghazi from village Gogasar Zakria, district Tharparkar says that four years ago Thardeep Rural Development Programme conducted a poverty survey, and his household was found to be below poverty line. TRDP then provided grant under National Poverty Graduation Programme  to start the motorcycle repair and tire puncture business. Ghazi opened shop in in August 2020 repairing motorcycles and fixing tire punctures, near his village, on the Naokot - Mithi road main stop. Within few months, his small shop started paying back. 

Ghazi says," from my daily earnings, I cover daily expenses and save around 1000 to 1200 in profit each day. Over the past four years, I have saved a significant amount of profit. I purchased a goat for 25,000 for milk, and also a used motorcycle for 30,000". Before he set up shop, Ghazi had single straw-thatched cottage which often would fall apart during rains with gusty winds. Ghazi was able to build brick-and-mortar pacca room for 85000 rupees which were earned from the shop over four years. 

Ghazi also supported his brother to set up a small business. His brother is a labourer but  was not finding work regularly since couple of years. 
Ghazi also took 50,000 interest-free loan from #TRDP, and purchased a deep freezer. He expanded the shop adding items such as juices and cold drinks .Ghazi says, "now my brother runs the shop and is very happy. From grocery shop, bike repair  and the tire puncture, we are saving a good amount. I am repaying the interest-free loan in monthly installments of 4138." Ghazi and his family  express gratitude to Thardeep, Government of Pakistan, NPGP,  Ministry PASS and IFAD for their support.

Naseeba, from village Sattarabad in district Tharparkar, belongs to a poor family. Her son worked as a laborer, earning 600 rupees daily. Naseeba says, "Due to high inflation, the cost of everything has increased, and so have our expenses. Our earnings became less than our expenses, making it difficult to cover all costs from daily earnings." A survey conducted by Thardeep Rural Development Programme two years ago found Naseeba's household below the poverty line.

To help Naseeba lift her family out of poverty, #TRDP under 'National Poverty Graduation Program' provided them with six goats. Naseeba says, "We took care of the goats, ensuring they were well-fed. Now, we have eleven goats, seven females and three males. We sold one male goat for 35,000 rupees and bought clothes, shoes, and other items for the children and myself to celebrate Eid." She adds, "Furthermore, we sell milk daily, which helps cover household expenses and the children's education costs."

Had Thardeep not provided us with goats, we would not have been able to celebrate this Eid happily. Naseeba expresses her gratitude to TRDP, the Government of Pakistan, Ministry PASS, NPGP, and IFAD for their support in making this Eid a happy one.
