Micro-Business Training Ensures Profit

RM Village*, Nepal


Since we started Transformational Community Development (TCD), the villagers are very interested in it and were encouraged to do Income Generation work. At the beginning of this month, they were applying TCD lessons, involving Income Production. It was a wonder to see them starting micro-shops.


Some villagers were doing well with their business whilst others were struggling. Seeing this, I thought that the villagers needed more teaching about business, so that they may gain profits from their business instead of losses. I started giving training to those who were interested. I taught them about, “What is Good Business? Where to do it? Is it profitable? What kind of business do you want to do? How much investment does it need?  Are you capable of doing this work?  etc.” These are the things we discussed and which gave them knowledge about how to succeed in business with less risk to fail.

I have taught villagers to make pickles. They had an abundance of produce and because they lacked skills, many let their produce go to waste. I told the villagers to not let their produce go to waste, but to make pickles and sell them, too.


Many times, I have visited villages to teach TCD lessons and encourage leaders. This month, I taught the villagers to be involved in multiplying TCD work. I talked with my friends and leaders and asked them to learn the lessons and teach them to others because TCD has powerful and important lessons which can change a person, a family, and a whole village, as well. 


By visiting the village and going door-to-door, I have taught the villagers to be safer from the coronavirus by using a mask when going to the market, always using a mask and sanitiser, and keeping social distance. I especially spent time teaching and encouraging them to do hand washing properly when using the toilet and personal health care as the cold season has started. 


Thank you!
