Samriddha Pahad – Access to finance and tourism development project (Phase II)

Duration and timeline:

[October 2020 to January 2021]

Thematic area & intervention:

Financial inclusion and capacity building of financial service providers 

Promotion of tourism and financial inclusion The mountainous and hilly regions of Nepal are inaccessible, underdeveloped economically, and geographically isolated. Poverty in these areas has been exacerbated by subsistence economic dependence, poor agricultural production, and restricted access to essential services. In Nepal's hilly and mountainous regions, there is a clear inequality in development that has led to poverty, sustainable livelihoods, and restricted access to capital. Through financial access, tourism promotion in the Kanchenjunga region, livelihood promotion, and the creation of micro-infrastructure, the project seeks to contribute to economic development.
