ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin has announced that the federal government plans to bring Kamyab Kisan Program on the footing of Kamyab Jawan Program.
Shaukat Tarin, sharing the details of the Kamyab Kisan plan, said that small farmers will receive a loan of Rs 2 million to improve crops.
He said the government has also accelerated cash payments under the Kamyab Jawan plan, and so far, 10,000 young people have taken advantage of this initiative.
“We have to improve these numbers to hundreds of thousands of youngsters in the next three years,” he said adding that it was a revolutionary program for prosperity at the ground level as it would empower people to own their business.
Tarin said that they want people to initiate business from the cash support besides also helping others in setting up businesses. “Disbursing loans in a large number will expedite the economic growth and would have an immediate effect on the ground,” the finance minister said.
On January 29, PM Imran Khan inaugurated Kamyab Kisan scheme during his visit to Sahiwal in order to provide a special package to farmers.
He said that every government must have plans like Ehsaas and Kamyab Jawan in order to minimize the burden on the poor. He detailed that the federal government has allocated 180 billion rupees in a transparent manner under the Ehsaas plan.
