At SSF, we offer loans to individuals have limited / no access to formal lending channels, to help them develop sustainable businesses. We believe financial services are a droit of poor, rather than a business

 

Objectively, we keep expanding the services in existing and non-existing rural / semi urban areas of Province Sindh Pakistan. On the other hand, to carry on with reduced operational costs we established branches and subsidiary branches at district/tehsil/UC and hamlet level to better treat and facilitate the poor and marginalized communities. We have been improving the quality of microfinance services especially in the remote areas like desert and coastal areas. As well as, to improve relationship with the clients we keep enterprise counseling as they can be at self-help.

Since 2001, we have been providing non-financial services primarily to men/women (borrowers and non-borrowers): the services include “Business Development” (training for business management and financial education, vocational training, individual business diagnosis, youth entrepreneurship program) “Product Quality Improvement” and “Marketing” (Product quality and control sessions, supplier trips, marketing and commercialization support); “Personal Development” (personal development session, awareness sessions, networking); “Provision to Toolkits and Equipment” (Post- hazard recover).

 

Henceforth, we also value clients’ participation in program development, treat personals with non-discrimination approaches, in loan distribution / collection we also worth transparency, and for the self-reliance we have designated the frontline staff who regularly meet the communities to be at self-help for own upgradation. Besides, at SSF we believe that team work is the only approach to cater the poverty and poorness. However, we the management has attired universal principles of client protection to better protect our clients and give them a preference in regard to social performance.

 

At SSF, we are one. We care about our team and capitalize their wisdom and advancement.

SSF aims to construct an environment which augments reliance, collaboration, inventiveness taking and reliability.
