Shanti’s Children Are Back in School

28 April 2022 | My Business My Freedom Program

Shanti was married at an early age. Her husband works as a daily wage laborer and his minimal pay is not sufficient to provide for the family and the schooling of their children. Because of this, their daughter stopped going to school.

When she became a member of My Business My Freedom two years ago, she took her first loan of NPR 30,000 [US$250]. She built a coop where she raised chickens. She quickly started to make a profit and easily paid off the loan.

From her chicken business she is able to make regular income for her family. Now she able to provide food for her children each day at school as well as notebooks and stationery materials. Her children, including her daughter, are much more motivated and excited to go to school now and continue their education.
