Pakistan’s largest digital bank, Mobilink Microfinance Bank Limited (MMBL) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Network of Organizations Working for People with Disabilities Pakistan (NOWPDP), an organization working for the enablement of Persons with disabilities (PWDs) through education and economic empowerment since 2008.

The two organizations will collaborate for skill enhancement and the creation of economic opportunities for PWDs, in line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

Through this collaboration, MMBL, under its Humqadam program – the bank’s flagship sustainability initiative for digital and financial training of the differently-abled individuals, will induct and train more than ten promising PWDs, recommended by NOWPDP, to work within its teams at the MMBL Head Office in Islamabad.

The program is designed to provide trainees with a working knowledge of the corporate sector with a focus on enhancing their digital and financial skill sets that can help strengthen their professional repertoire.

MMBL and NOWPDP will jointly monitor and evaluate the performance of the Humqadam trainees.

Those who post excellent performances and display promising potentials will be offered permanent employment positions at the bank at the end of the program.

Sharing his thoughts regarding the partnership, President & CEO, MMBL, Mr. Ghazanfar Azzam said: “As a socially responsible corporate entity, MMBL is always on the lookout for opportunities to create shared value for the people we serve.

We feel the responsibility to work for uplifting marginalized social groups, including women and PWDs, who have all the potential to play a significant role in the economic progress of Pakistan.
