Zahida Imran came back to Pakistan after spending five years in Germany. She wanted to set up an online clothing store, but was unsure how to go about it. She had no experience in running a business. The Pakistani-German Facilitation and Reintegration Centre (PGFRC) invited her to take part in a business development and employability skills training course.
“When I received the call, I asked the advisor what exactly the training involves”, Zahida says. “He told me that it dealt with basic business concepts. The aim is to give participants guidance on how to successfully start and run a business. I was elated and said yes to it straight away.”
