MISSION

SAVE THE SOCIETY FROM THE DANGERS OF RIBA HERE AND HEREAFTER BY CREATE AWARENESS AND PROFESSIONAL INITIATIVES

OVERVIEW
Laariba Foundation was started as society and began its operation on 30th March 2009 with an intention to empower the society by lending short-term interest free micro loans for immediate and urgent needs. It is targeted to help the needy who are unable to access credit, or get it at unfair or unethical terms. It is a non-profit organization and all financial transactions are devoid of interest. Laariba is formed after considering the severe impact of interest among the poor that led to many social issues including suicides and upon identification of a severe gap in such a service in the region. It is also noticed that the issue of interest is taken very lightly by the community in spite of its severe religious implications.
