PM Imran Khan to set an example for the rest of the world!
Islamabad: Scheduled to launch on the 9th of August, Kamyab Programme is all set to alleviate the living standard of the ones living below the poverty line.
At the annual ICCE summit 2021 that took place on Monday virtually Prime Minister Imran Khan announced the launch of the Kamyab Programme and declared that the initiative will become “an example for the developing world to follow”.
According to the plans about 40% of the country’s population that currently lives below the poverty line will be provided access to education, health and housing.

Truly caring for the citizen’s health, the Prime Minister added “Every family will get a health card with a limit of Rs. 1,000,000 which can be used at any hospital”.
To encourage the younger generation to develop their entrepreneurial skills, a member from each family will be given a chance to take interest free loans, to start a business.
During his speech, Prime Minister Imran Khan pointed out that under the guidance of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, the government has worked to make housing more affordable to the people of Pakistan by encouraging banks to give out loans. The Prime Minister mentioned that only 0.2% of housing loans are given in Pakistan, the percentage is lowest in the region.
PM Imran khan further explained that the reason why many individuals are forced to encroach on land, is because they do not have the finances to buy a property of their own. To help the citizens be able to buy their own property, the government has subsided interest on housing loans.
