INTEREST FREE LOAN

Interest Free Loans for Young Physicians

1. Objectives:
To give interest free loans in the form of Qarz al Hasana in order to help those Pakistani physicians and students who are in need of financial assistance.  At the same time, it will be ensured that this scheme will remain viable in the long-term, through the establishment of good administrative infrastructure, which should include strict, yet compassionate rules and regulations in regard to return of loans, based on first and foremost, mutual trust and then legal contractual obligations between the committee on young physicians and the beneficiaries. There will be strict accountability of committee funds.

2. Establishment of the Fund:
    
A. Infrastructure:
This fund will be used for loans that will give Loans with condition of easy repayment without incurring an interest.

B. Fund-raising:
It will be through funds raised or allocated for the committee by APPNA, raised by members of the CYP, and by volunteers all across the country from the platform of APPNA. No donation or gift or contribution by any individual or group will be refused, once the CYP committee has been duly informed and its consent obtained.  Effort will be made to gain volunteers and supporters from physicians who have benefitted from efforts of APPNA and CYP.

3. Dissemination of Loans:
Conditions for return of loans will be established through mutually agreed terms and in keeping with the interest free spirit of the project and it will be ensured that no undue hardship or inconvenience is caused to any party. The viability of the project will be maintained by ensuring that details of all loan agreements exist in writing and are legally binding in the form of a contract in order to achieve a timely return of all loans keeping in mind that the only true objective of the committee is indeed community service and assistance. The legally binding contract will be drawn up in the presence of an authorized representative of the CYP, the borrower and the guarantors and it will include all details of the agreement including actions that will be resorted to, in the event of non-repayment of the loan. Guarantors will also be included as signatories of the legal agreement. They will be identified by both parties and will include but may not be limited to respectable members of the community. No discrimination will be allowed based on gender in this regard. The term of the loan will be one year, unless clearly and explicitly stated and agreed by both parties.  Return of the loan can begin after a year and in accordance with a mutually agreed upon installment plan, not including any interest amount. In the event that the loan is not or cannot be returned within the specified period, a written statement (signed by the borrower as well as his guarantors) will be submitted to the CYP in a timely manner, of the need for more time, as well as details of the desired new repayment plan. Every effort will be made by both parties, with assistance of the whole community to avoid legal recourse. In the event that a dispute becomes imminent, it will first be handled by an already agreed upon committee, comprising of arbiters from within the community.  Matters will only be taken to civil court after a failure to achieve implementation of decisions made by the community’s arbitration committee.

4. Eligibility:

A. Target Population
Pakistani Medical students or Physicians looking for residencies, research positions and other opportunities to advance their careers in medicine in order to not just become breadwinners for their families but also to become active and influential members of the Pakistani community and thus take part in helping others and being active in the principles of kindness and philanthropy.
