Support Shavwir Alam in Purchasing an E-Rickshaw

This is Mr. Shavwir Alam. You might see him at the Rohini East metro station during office hours, waiting expectantly to take people back home after a long day at work. He will always see you off with a warm smile and a warmer Khush'aamdid or Shukriya.

He's been doing this for years now, ferrying people from my colony, a kindred and familiar face. Mr. Alam is 48 years old now. His legs don't work like they used to before and he probably won't sweep you off your feet with his service, especially with the faster and cheaper E rickshaws competing with him. It has become very hard to make ends meet and he hardly has any money left after having spent all his saving on his daughters' weddings. The solution is simple and you could help!

HELP MR ALAM PURCHASE AN E RICKSHAW. An E rickshaw's cost ranges from INR 1.1-1.5 lakh. The money raised  shall go towards buying his E rickshaw and act as a collateral for loan for the leftover amount.  Your contribution could help him earn a steadier income with less burden on his health. His enthusiasm for his job remains as high as ever and so does the beaming smile. His savings stand at a meager INR 1,100 and hence acquiring a loan has been a huge problem.

This is a call to actively share, support and contribute towards the cause. Every contribution would get Mr Alam one step closer to his dream of ferrying people in an E rickshaw. It would be a step closer to a secure livelihood and dignified life, something that he has earned after years of dedicated service.

The E Rickshaw is here. Thankyou for your support! :)
8th September 2017
We have received quotations for the E rickshaw. As soon as the money is withdrawn into his account, we will apply for a loan for the leftover amount. It'll be provided by our point of contact in one of the cooperative organisations that gives out low interest loans. The E rickshaw vendor who gave us the quotation will also help with the license. We got his Adhaar Card updated with the Delhi address so that he gets a license.

Hopefully in two weeks, Mr Shawvir Alam should have his rickshaw.

Thank you everyone for all the support shown so far.
