The situation in Nepal has been unstable since the start of pandemic – lockdowns implemented, schools and businesses closing, many becoming unemployed. Even our My Business My Freedom Program (MBMF) has gone through rough times with some staff getting infected with COVID-19.
Despite this, the staff and the women of MBMF continue to strive to operate as normally as possible.
We are glad that many of the women have already learned skills and started small businesses of their interest that works around their current environment and abilities. Agriculture and vegetable growing, poultry rearing, and cow/buffalo rearing are among the most common businesses. Others include goat rearing, snack shops, and tailoring shops.
We remain confident that the skills and businesses that these women have established will help them sustain their families amidst the current circumstance. Meanwhile, our staff continue to support them as we all hope for better days ahead.
