Niaz Wali is an expert cobbler (Peshawari Chapal). Along with his father he had been managing this business on credit. Due to shortage of capital/fund they were unable to purchase sufficient stock. This was resulting into continuous decline in their profits. Niaz is looking after a joint family of more than 10 members. This family business is the only source of income. He was in difficulty managing both education and health expense needs of his family.
GEAR Intervention: Now they are able to purchase raw material in bulk quantity which has helped them to grow their business through improved purchase power, better pricing and reduced transport costs, all resulting in increased profits.
