The idea of socks making was of Mr. Musadaq. One day Mr. Musadaq was reading a magazine and observing clothe designs of different famous brands. While watching he noted that there is very small quantity of socks brands especially in PAKISTAN, so he decided to introduce a new manufacturing organization of socks in PAKISTTAN. He shared his idea with his friends, relatives and family members, every one laugh at him and not a single person gave him serious response. But there was a person who encourages him and supported him allot he was Mr. Naveed. As we know both the brothers were well educated but there is a problem they couldn’t afford expense of their dream. Because the heavy and automatic machines were so costly. So Mr. Naveed was a mechanical engineer he collect some used parts of different machines and make a single machine.

INTER-LOOP immediately dispatched food items and distributed amongst IDPs of District Nowshera, as the people of these areas deserved full support and needed to be treated with sympathy, love and kindness. Moreover, arrangements for provisions of meal for IDPs of Gojra were made through Government Administration Gojra during and after the disturbance period. Optimism and hope were the galvanizing spirit to accomplish the Corporate Responsibility by INTER-LOOP Limited. Earthquake Tent Village: INTER-LOOP is proud to be a part of the biggest ever humanitarian aids for the largest natural disaster that ever struck Pakistan in October 2005, killing over 80,000 people and rendering millions homeless.

SUGGESTIONS:

Our personal suggestion to INTER-LOOP that they should also manufacture for PAKISTAN. There all production export to Foriegn Countries and unfortunately PAKISTAN again bought that sock from them on high prices. If INTER-LOOP directly sell their products to PAKISTANI purchasers then it would be benifitial for PAKISTANI people.
