Starting Poultry and Orange Farming after Vocational Training
Mr. Shiv Thapa, 30, of Gaindakot VDC – 9 says - I was really tired of toiling in Dubai, Qatar for so long, so I returned from the Middle East. I used to do very hard manual labor work with very low financial incentive. My father was so sad to know that I couldn’t pay back the loan around Rs. 600,000 ($7,058.82) taken for my foreign employment job processing. I decided to do something in my own village.
