Poverty in Nepal has been dominantly defined in socio-economic terms. People living under the daily income of US $1 are considered below poverty line.  Almost half of the rural populations are living below the poverty line. This is primarily due to lack of livelihood opportunities, widespread unemployment and lack of skills such as technical or entrepreneurial skills.

 

Key Objective:

Enhance the entrepreneurship skill of community people for economic and livelihood upliftment

 

Activities:

  • Promoting agro-based skill and initiate income generation activities
  • Explore Opportunities for self-employment
  • Introduce Saving  and investment schemes and encourage people to start cooperatives at local level
  • Increase investment for small business and micro enterprises
