July, 2022 | Micro-Loan Story

Mrs. Raj Kumari Chaudhary is a member of the Parivartan Mother Group. She joined the mother group in 2008. She has two sons and a daughter. Raj Kumari's eldest son is married and has a 24-year-old son.

Raj Kumari was renting a home for her family. Her daughter, Miss Riya Chaudhary, was supported by HI (Humanity & Inclusion) for education before Raj Kumari joined the mother’s group.

After joining the Parivartan Mother Group, she began to attending monthly meetings to learn about starting her own business. She began to share her stories and the difficulties that she had staying in this rented house. All of the Group members decided to work towards owning their own houses rather than renting.

Raj Kumari started her first business with a goat that her daughter had received as part of HI's support iniciatives. This helped the family stay at home and work as goat farmers.

Now her daughter is working as a student program coordinator at the C.P. (Creating Possibilities) Nepal. Her eldest son has gone abroad with these small business loans from the Unako cooperative. Now, both of her sons have jobs and Raj Kumari is able to build an amazing life for herself and her family.

Raj Kumari says that, “My daughter, Riya Chaudhary, has always supported me in managing home loans, and planning and making arrangements for the Puja for the house and every way. So, I would like to sincerely thank all the supportive hands who have always loved me and my family.”

The family moved back to Nepal from India, and with the help of HER and Creating Possibilities Nepal, her daughters can regularly attend school. Chameli, who joined the mother group in 2013, also takes literacy classes.

With the help of a micro-loan she received through CanScribe, Chameli is able to raise pigs and make local alcohol. Her business has allowed her family to stay in Nepal, which makes them very happy. If not for this opportunity, the family could not survive in Nepal and they would have had to return to India for labor work.

How Our Organization Gives Back

Her International

CanScribe supports Her International, an organization that helps women succeed in many areas from business, to education, and learning. Below are some images of a school that was built in Nepal, with the help of many generous donors and volunteers, including our own CEO, Colleen Chapman, and our Curriculum Development Manager, Jamie Podmorow.

Random Acts of Kindness

Annually, CanScribe supports its own Random Acts of Kindness. Over the years this has come in many different forms. Most recently, during the pandemic, each team member was tasked with surprising a random person with a large cash donation. Some people left $100 tips for a $20 meal, others anonymously paid for other's groceries at the store. This program created internally is to support our local communities across Canada.
