Manju’s business is thriving

October 31, 2016

This is Manju, she’s flourishing at her shop stall because of a loan WWR gave her.


Please read this fantastic story about one of our women, Hasta Kumari

March 4, 2015

She came to us 5 months after the death of her husband. She has 3 children. Hasta Kumari herself was not well most of the time. She had been to hospital many times for her treatment. She did household work for others and only just survived. It was a difficult time for her.


Now we are supporting her with room rent, and child benefit for 3 children.
At Grace Women’s home we gave training for women’s empowerment, she felt she can do work. So, as you know, we have a saving group. She took the loan from the group Rs, 5000 (£35/$50). Then ran a small tea and snacks shop near by her room. She is doing good business at that. She can sell the worth of around 1500 rs per day. She already returned back Rs. 5000 plus interest. On this month she took again Rs. 20000 from the group and she wants to expand the shop.

Nowadays she is happy and also no need to go the hospital frequently like before and is easily providing for her family too.

Please take a moment to vote for WWR to win £500 on the Small Business Britain website.

We would like to improve our shop premises in Kathmandu, Nepal and the money would allow us to do this.   Women who have attended our sewing and literacy course work in the shop and it enables them to earn a living and provide for their families.  There are lots of charities on the website, but our name is next to this photo.
