Mobilink Bank, Daraz facilitate women entrepreneurs

KARACHI: Mobilink Microfinance Bank Limited (MMBL) and Daraz Pakistan have joined hands to facilitate MMBL borrowers specifically women entrepreneurs, by enabling them to become sellers on Daraz.

Through this collaboration, MMBL and Daraz will provide adequate opportunities to promote Small and Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs), more so now as the e-commerce platform is going through an all-time boom via the 11.11 sale.

Both the organizations are firmly committed to promoting women’s financial inclusion through the provision of enabling digital financial ecosystem that contributes directly towards empowering this underserved, yet influential segment, which comprises almost half of the country’s population.

MMBL’s flagship program, Women Inspirational Network (WIN), and Daraz’s Ibtida would together provide an incredible boost to our joint mission of upskilling women entrepreneurs and provide them easy access to digitally equipped growth opportunities.

Sharing his enthusiasm, Ehsan Saya, Managing Director at DarazPakistan, said: “We strongly believe women are not only the cornerstone of our society but instrumental in securing a better future for Pakistan. One of the most amazing things about our platform is how easily female entrepreneurs can sell their products all over Pakistan – empowering them is the epitome of uplifting communities.”

This partnership will allow freshly onboarded MMBL female sellers to be charged zero per cent commission for the first three months, giving them ample time to set up their businesses.

Moreover, female sellers from Daraz will be able to apply for MMBL loans at concessional rates.
