This disabled person is a school class fellow and an ex-neighbor of my cousin. He used to live in a flat in G-9/2, Islamabad and they use to play cricket together as well. While studying in the 10th grade, he along with his younger brother and a friend were riding a bus, by hanging outside the bus, as the bus was full. That bus had an accident with another bus near Karachi Company Bus Stop, G-9 Markaz, Islamabad, which resulted in the death of his younger brother, his friend and he got disabled in his left arm.
Recently my cousin came to know that his financial situation is not good. He has a wife and four children, a college going daughter and son and two school going kids. He wants to continue their education and would like to gather some money in a few years for his daughter’s marriage. My cousin has been supporting him financially for the past two months but he is ashamed to receive financial support in this manner thus he requested a loan to start his Grocery Store (Karyana Store). The aim is that he should be able to earn Rs 20,000 to Rs 35,000 from this karyana store on a monthly basis, so that he should be able to support his family.
After exploring the options and negotiations of 10 days, they have finalized a small shop on rent, where the previous tenant was leaving the shop. My cousin donated him Rs 15,000 for the token money to confirm the shop. They have also researched the expenditure of all grocery items and have prepared the required budget in detail, which is available in the pictures below.
Although he has requested a loan and he intends to start returning Rs 2,000 to Rs 4,000 per month after 2 to 3 months but due to his current financial situation, this seems unlikely. If he is able to return then the donation can be utilized in another charity project. All finances will be managed by my cousin to ensure proper utilization. He is in need of a total of Rs 400,514 (SAR 9,476) with the following details:
- Shop Rent and Security : Rs 42,000 + Rs 12,000 = Rs 54,000
- Pulses, Rice, Masala, Shampoos, Face Soaps, Ghee, Cooking Oil, etc : Rs 261,514
- Fruits and Vegetables : Rs 25,000
- Snacks, Biscuits, Candies, etc : Rs 60,000
