ISLAMABAD – Forbes , a global media company focusing on business , investing and entrepreneurship, has ranked Pakistan as the best place for social entrepreneurs to make a living.

According to Forbes, one of three countries that made progress is Pakistan overall this year, leaping from #32 in 2016 to #14 overall this year.

According to U.S. News, Pakistan scored #73 on quality of life, making it one of the worse places to live. Yet, the South Asian nation managed to tie with Canada, Australia, and Finland at #1 for the best places to make a living.

Government support and access to non-financial assistance in Pakistan lag behind most countries. However, the nation scored exceptionally high for women in leadership positions and ease of accessing investment.

Pakistan , despite having limited government support and being difficult to sell to businesses and government agencies, still commands #1 for earning a living. The nation's comeback in this category is a remarkable feat given the country was ranked #30 in 2016. The improvement of livable income may be because Pakistan has become a more open market for do-good companies to sell to the general public.
