Mrs. Urmila is a 33-year-old mother. She is the president of a Laliguras mother's group in her village of Gadhawa Rural Municipality of Dang. This group was formed with the help of Creating Possibilities Nepal (CP Nepal). The group provides women with access to education, healthcare, and employment opportunities.
Here is a her story from on her own word:
I used to have a chicken farm, but I lost money because I didn't know how to manage the business properly. When I joined the mother's group, I learned how to manage my business better and make it more profitable. I also learned about different micro businesses that I could start. The mother's group gave me access to valuable resources and knowledge. I was able to learn from other experienced business owners, which gave me more insight into how to run my business successfully. I was also able to get advice on how to diversify my income by starting other micro businesses.
I decided to start a goat-rearing and poultry business. I rented 10 kattha of land and now have 30 goats and 70 chickens. I am confident that my business will be successful, and I am grateful for the support of the mother's group.
The mother's group has helped me in many ways. CP Nepal provided me with training, financial assistance, and moral support.Through the group, CPNepal
has helped me to connect with other women in my community and build a network of support.
I am proud to be a part of the mother's group. I know that we are making a difference in our community, and I am excited to see what the future holds for us.
I hope that my story will inspire other women to reach for their dreams. With hard work and determination, anything is possible. She says "I will eventually morph into a successful businesswoman.
