Green Loans for a Plastic-Free GB

Banning and enforcement is not enough, creating alternative business is also required۔
In this regard, the Plastic Free GB campaign has been complemented with green loans of 5 lakhs, 10 lakhs and 15 lakhs to wholesalers of eco-friendly biodegradable and cloth bags
Today the first set of loans of 5 lakhs each was distributed among 5 female entrepreneurs who were excited to manufacture cloth bags immediately
We are getting these social entrepreneurs connected with their prospective buyers and clients in GB
The project “Green Loans for a Plastic Free GB” is under implementation of Gilgit-Baltistan Rural Support Programme (GBRSP) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
InshaAllah, in the next few days, the loans of 1 million and 1.5 million loans wil be distributed among all qualified entrepreneurs
For these green loans we have followed a transparent process of selection in which we have given preference to female entrepreneurs۔
