Introduction

Community Support Concern (CSC)

Community Support Concern (CSC) has been changing lives since 1989. It aims to improve the lives of the most poor and underprivileged members of the society. It has been a challenging journey made easy by the undying commitment of the hardworking and motivated team. CSC has been expanding its branches throughout Punjab and reaching out to those who need its help in different walks of life. CSC recognizes the needs and interests of the society, where it sees a future of equality between men and women in both the professional and personal parts of their lives. CSC's clients have been able to change their lives with the help of different programs that are designed to assist and help them out of poverty and hopelessness to a world of possibilities.

"Our microfinance program is targeted towards hardworking individuals who have been held back due to lack of finance. When they came to CSC for help, we supported them by loaning them the necessary investment to make their dreams a reality. CSC has been active in other activities that help empower women such as theater, counseling, training, legal, and medical assistance. CSC has always been active in bringing opportunities to those who deserve it the most. We take pride in the work we do and our team is forever ready to take on new challenges and tasks that would help us further our aim and mission."

CSC Empowerment & Inclusion Programme (CEIP)

In March 2015, CSC decided to obtain license under Section 42 and 43 of the Companies Ordinance 1984 as a public company with limited liability (with no share capital) and became CSC Empowerment and Inclusion Program. CEIP aims to alleviate poverty in Pakistan through a two-fold strategy geared towards financial inclusion and capacity building. CEIP is one of the few microfinance organizations in Pakistan following the Grameen Microfinance Model successfully. Started off as Community Support Concern (CSC), the organization has since expanded its operations to target a diverse set of issues faced by the poor that make up the majority of the country, including health and the marginalization of women.

The organization recognizes the need to educate and equip communities in order to develop them sustainably and thus provides both financial and non-financial services through an expanding team of dedicated individuals.
