KARACHI: Khush­hal­iMi­cro­fi­nance Bank has signed an agree­ment with Pak­istan Agri­cul­tural Re­search Coun­cil (PARC) in its pur­suit of achiev­ing the goal of pro­mot­ing sus­tain­able agri­cul­tural en­vi­ron­ment for the farm­ers in the ru­ral ar­eas of Pak­istan. The al­liance aims at fa­cil­i­tat­ing small farm­ers by pro­vid­ing them ex­pert train­ing ses­sion which will ben­e­fit them to adapt mod­ern cul­ti­va­tion tech­niques in their farm­ing un­der the cli­mate change sce­nario.

Ac­cord­ing to the agree­ment, PARC, through th­ese ex­pert train­ing ses­sions, will ed­u­cate the farm­ers to boost their yield by cul­ti­vat­ing high yield­ing dis­ease re­sis­tant va­ri­eties, ef­fi­cient use of fer­til­iz­ers and pesticides, land prepa­ra­tion and post-har­vest tech­niques.

Khush­hali bank’s agree­ment with PARC fol­lows the bank’s earnest ef­forts of pro­vid­ing a flour­ish­ing en­vi­ron­ment to small farm­ers through a com­bi­na­tion of its fi­nan­cial ser­vices and its CSR ac­tiv­i­ties en­tail­ing reg­u­lar train­ing pro­grams for the farm­ers, who lack ad­e­quate knowl­edge of prof­itable farm busi­ness. Th­ese train­ing pro­grams will be con­ducted reg­u­larly on quar­terly ba­sis.
