K-P Governor Sardar Mehtab Ahmed Khan has announced interest-free loans will be provided to tribespeople in Fata under a project worth Rs1.25 billion. “The loan will help promote commerce and industry, and would enable people to earn an honourable living by running their own businesses,” he said. The K-P governor expressed these views while inaugurating the multi-billion project “Governor K-P Interest-Free Loan for Fata” in Ghallanai, Mohmand Agency. The project was launched in collaboration with microfinance organisation Akhuwat to help reconstruction and rehabilitation of the tribespeople.
