Spread­ing out Ladies­fund

Enterprise - - Editor’s desk - Arnold Pa­trick Karachi

Ladies­Fund has re­mained a fo­cal point of at­ten­tion, when­ever the de­vel­op­ment of Pak­istan is dis­cussed. I ap­pre­ci­ate En­ter­prise for let­ting us dis­cover this bril­liant ini­tia­tive through the in­sight pro­vided by Tara Uzra Da­wood her­self. Her in­ter­view was en­rich­ing in con­text of the ef­forts of Ladies­Fund in the fields of fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity and em­pow­er­ment. A pro­ject like this is more than nec­es­sary for a coun­try like Pak­istan, where peo­ple wrongly mix up fi­nan­cial man­age­ment with cri­sis man­age­ment. As part of fast chang­ing fi­nan­cial de­mands, peo­ple need to seek fi­nan­cial ad­vice as part of their daily fi­nan­cial man­age­ment. Par­tic­u­larly by pro­vid­ing fi­nan­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties to the women of Pak­istan, Ladies­Fund is reach­ing out to re­solve com­plex so­cial is­sues which are de­pen­dent on women em­pow­er­ment. There should be a more sup­port­ive struc­ture for such projects for achiev­ing long-term pros­per­ity
