Pulwama: Prime Minister's Employment Guarantee Program (PMEGP) has provided educated and unemployed people of Pulwama region of Jammu and Kashmir employment opportunities, media reports said.

One such example is young entrepreneur Muhammad Asgar Bhat from Wahibugh from the district of South Kashmir who has turned adversity in his life into an opportunity to start a unit of shoe, slippers or Chappal making under the centre sponsored scheme, ANI reports.

"PMEGP gave me Rs 25 lakh loan to start my business and I have completed five to six months. Over 20 people work in this unit. I appeal to the people who are unemployed to take benefit of the scheme like me," Muhammad Asgar Bhat, the owner of the Shoe/Slipper manufacturing unit told ANI.

Bhat said the scheme helped him in his path of earning.
