Uma’s Cow

Uma lives in the Chitwan district. It is the home to various ethnicity but the majority of the people living in this area are the Dalits and Janajatis. These people are considered as low caste people. The majority of them are poor because they don’t own any land and cannot get loans leaving these women open to the lure of traffickers and their false stories of money and a good life.

She came to know about the My Business My Freedom program while the 3 Angels Nepal district coordinator was hosting an awareness program in her community. Uma was invited along to the women’s meeting and participated in the program. She got involved in the training and when she was ready, she received her first microloan. She used some of it for farming while the rest, she used on animal husbandry (a cow). Her cow is in great health and she earns money daily by selling its milk. She is also paying off her loan regularly in installments and has never skipped a payment. Uma is happy and proud of what she has accomplished with the help of the My Business My Freedom Program.

There are currently 332 women in the My Business My Freedom program with small businesses including poultry rearing, snack shops, cow rearing, bag shops and much more. The support they receive from each other as well as the project managers means the default rate is very low and the mutual respect of the project managers and the women.
