Dr. Sono started his professional career in late 1982 as a teacher (lecturer) in Agriculture University Tando Jam Sindh, which allowed him to learn teaching skills, understand research methodology and its conduct, and it linked with National and International Academia. He joined the corporate sector in 1987 as a senior professional and learned about business models particularly in dairy farming and animal husbandry industry in Pakistan. Finally, he ended up working in the development sector from early 1993 and still continue to work. In the development sector, he has an accumulated stay of 23 years working with the diversified community and its mobilization. Having such diversified experience of working, starting as a senior professional in NRSP to CEO in TRDP and SRSO helped me a leader but without an appropriate training of leadership.
After NRSP, he got an opportunity to lead TRDP, SRSO and now TMF, which helped in sharpening my understanding of credit practices, approaches, methodology, risks, and staff management. Out of the total stay of 23 years, I have been actively engaged over 14 years exclusively in managing the Micro Credit and Enterprise Development activities including Credit portfolio, risk management and coordination with all stakeholders.

The Organization he is leading now has a very ambitious plan of growth while adopting the technology and want to become a risk-free growth organization in the future.
