Pakistan is a sovereign country in South Asia. With a population exceeding 180 million people, it is the sixth most populous country and with an area covering 796,095 km2 (307,374 sq mi), it is the 36th largest country in the world in terms of area.
Pakistan has a 1,046-kilometre (650 mi) coastline along the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman in the south and is bordered by India to the east, Afghanistan to the west, Iran to the southwest and China in the far northeast.
Pakistan is a rapidly developing country and is one of the Next Eleven, the eleven countries that, along with the BRICs, have a high potential to become the world’s largest economies in the 21st century. However, after decades of war and social instability, as of 2013, serious deficiencies in basic services such as railway transportation and electric power generation had developed.
With 180.1 million residents reported in 2012, Pakistan is the sixth most populated country in the world, behind Brazil and ahead of Bangladesh. Still about 20% of the population live below the international poverty line of US $ 1.25 a day.
With about 35 million residents living below the international poverty line the Operation Boost program in Pakistan has a lot of potential. It is a close cooperation with several Social Franchise Partners in Karachi, Islambad, Lahore and Peshawar. The organizations target group continues to be the poor and people from all socio- economic backgrounds.
The Operation Boost Program will help the focus groups to find a decent way back to the society as an independent entrepreneur in the ECO business.
