Brenda visits villages such as Apti village which has 1200 people. Maher started several programs there including a micro finance program. This program began with 20 villagers agreeing to contribute 100 rupees each month to be available for loans to those needing money to start business or needing help. Brenda also visited the villages of Kenduur and Navjeen. The images below are a culmination of several days of travels.
