Abdullah sells solar panels and items along with a few electric items. The local community uses his services in fixing their household electric items. Abdullah has been able to understand the needs of the local people since there is an increased demand for solar items due to the electricity shortage all over Pakistan. He has high personal motivation, courage, persistence, hope and faith in God, which he combines with his prior experience with this business. Lack of capital and lack of knowledge of the local market have been major constraints. Abdullah’s relatives and the local people supported him through charity (Zakat) and loans to start his business. His friends prefer to support him by purchasing from his shop. The wholesaler Abdullah uses has become a constraint, since they now refuse to do business with him on credit. The main institutional barrier that Abdullah faced is the lack of knowledge about getting financial assistance and his way around; but his friends educated him about the local market and how to do business.
