For over two decades, UNDP in partnership with the Government of Nepal and with the support from the Government of Australia, has been working towards the goal of eradicating poverty by helping those living below the poverty line to become entrepreneurs through  the Micro-enterprise Development Programme (MEDEP). In its lifetime, MEDEP has had a transformative effect in the lives of over 131,000 individuals, majority of whom have become successful and empowered entrepreneurs not just providing for their own families but also creating employment for others, as well as becoming leaders in their communities.

This collection offers a peek at the stories of some of these many successful entrepreneurs and insight into the journeys they undertook, the hardships and opportunities encountered--and the role played by MEDEP’s direct and indirect support along the way.
