    "I would like to congratulate the Ansar team in waging the war against the corrupt banking system. You are not alone, every sane person who is fighting the Riba-based system is a part of your initiative."
    Asst Professor Amjad Khan Suri
    "I have been fortunate enough to have been able to benefit from the small loans firstly to help with my son’s wedding a few years ago, and again, more recently to help pay a debt... I wish Ansar Finance every success in the future."

    "When my house was damaged through no fault of my own, I turned to Ansar for emergency support. Ansar helped me to rebuild my life. It is the only organisation I know that does what it does. Without them, I really don’t know where I would be today."
