A loan of $150 helped to buy food supplies for her restaurant.

Shrijana's story

Shrijana B. has just opened a new restaurant business in the city of Patan located in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Her restaurant has only been open for one week and already there have been many satisfied customers.

Shrijana is applying for a loan of $150 to stock up on food supplies for her restaurant. She and her husband work together cooking the food and make traditional Newari meals which are popular with people belonging to the Newari ethnicity. Buffalo is used to make most Newari foods and a favourite Newari snack is dried buffalo spiced meat, similar in taste to beef jerky.

Shrijana and her husband have been married for one year and do not have any children as yet. Their family home is opposite the restaurant which will make getting to work very easy for both of them. Prior to opening the restaurant she and her husband were working in handicrafts.
