Whether on the streets of Kathmandu or in the villages outside of the capital, tea shops are places of business and meeting in Nepal. Called a chiya pasal, these tea shops make a sweet, milky tea that can be purchased for a few cents a cup. With a Kiva loan, BPW's borrowers are able to keep their store shelves stocked while increasing their profit margins by buying in greater volume.
