Micro Economic Initiative

During the period of armed conflict in Nepal, the NRCS and the ICRC worked in most parts of the country and in close proximity to thousands of already impoverished families whose lives had been shattered by the armed conflict and whose economic security had been dangerously undermined. Soon after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord in November 2006, our organizations therefore decided to launch an ambitious micro-economic initiative programme aimed at helping those families hardest hit by the conflict to restore their livelihoods.
