The Union of Small and Medium Enterprises (UNISAME) is pleased to take the SME farmers in its fold and in this connection has welcomed the SME Farmers Association (SMEFA) as an affiliated forum and agreed to advocate its cause with full vigour in all forums.
President UNISAME Zulfikar Thaver said UNISAME had sponsored SMEFA many years ago and kept requesting the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) to take the SME farmers in their fold and consider them also as entrepreneurs by virtue of their income generation activity. Most of the SME farmers are also engaged in value addition of their produce. In fact they belong to the primary sector and are part and parcel of the supply chain and are suppliers of raw material to the industrial units.
UNISAME is thankful to the State Bank of Pakistan ( SBP) for giving due recognition to the farm sector and facilitating financing for SME farmers. The UNISAME Council has assured full support and co-operation to SMEFA and has opened its doors for SME farmers and has promised to attend to all their matters just like they do for the SME all over Pakistan.
