Living Through a Crisis

Suma Pun (28) lives with her husband and child. Her husband is 60 years old and unable to support his family. Suma joined the My Business My Freedom program and with her first microloan, purchased a sewing machine to make clothes to sell. Her small business started to grow quickly as the quality of her work spread. She successfully paid back her first loan and took out her second microloan to purchase extra fabric and an interlocking machine to make her clothes even more professional.

Because of the countrywide lockdown, Suma’s business suffered with no customers. She struggled to provide food for her family. Suma was one of 30 My Business My Freedom women who received a month’s supply of food to help them through this crisis.

All microloan repayments have been suspended until the crisis is over. Now that the lockdown restrictions are starting to lift in Nepal, Suma is very keen to open her business again and start generating income to continue repaying her microloan and being able to
support her family.
