NEPAL BANKS START SELF HELP PROGRAMME
A batch of selected officers from the Nirdhan Utthan bank had come for an orientation on Self help Groups to Manavodaya in 2005 and were successful in promoting the Indian model of self help groups as a complementary method. This led to promotion of self help method on a larger scale and more than three dozen senior officers of the bank including the Regional Director undertook a week long training programme in self reliant group formation and management at Manavodaya.
The success achieved by Nirdhan Utthan Bank in starting such a programme led another bank in Nepal i.e. the Pashchimanchal Grameen Bikas Bank to start a programme on Self Reliant Groups and accordingly sent a full batch of officers for training to our Lucknow centre.
