The Development Aid program has provided over 12 million Nepali rupees in grants to rural farming communities in the last 10 years. 9 million of the grants has been spent to provide thousands of individual micro-loans of between 5,000 and 25,000 NPR, each giving the opportunity for a rural household to purchase livestock, farming equipment, or other income generating tools. The remaining grants have been used for building construction, student scholarships, skill training, irrigation and road repair, and a large variety of other projects. For a full description of the Development Aid program and the specific projects established through it, please visit the Trianglen program site.
ASK-Nepal’s goal with the Development Aid program was to build a lasting development scheme that brings rural communities together to make decisions and provides them with the finances needed to start using new income generating activities. Thanks to the program, the ASK-Trianglen villages are more democratic, equal, and financially independent. The microfinance scheme also ensures that the funds from the program will continue to have a positive impact in the future.
