Kamyab Jawan Program

Kamyab Jawan is a scheme that was initiated by Prime Minster Imran Khan in order to support the Pakistani Youth and also to increase the number of entrepreneurs in the country. The main mission of this program is to provide loans to youth, which means that people who age from 21-45 can apply for such loans in order start business of their own.

    The project Kamyab Jawan is indeed a great step taken by the government but I am fear that this project might end up like almost every great project that started by the previous governments and were infiltrated by poisons such as corruption. This project is also affiliated with all of the banks from Pakistan. It is true that this project shows promise but at the end of the day the question remains the same will it’ll be able to fulfil the promise it shows or it will fall like almost every other project as the new government come to reign.
