Project Overview

Located in Kohalpur Muncipalty, in mid-western Nepal this project was fully financed by funds revolved from previous Lumanti projects. Lumanti lent housing loans directly to the Basobas Mahila (Women’s) Cooperative, which in turn allocated individual loans to member households. The clients were required to repay their loan, using an agreed repayment schedule, with the funds revolved again and reallocated by Lumanti to support other housing projects throughout Nepal.

The new homeowners previously lived in housing which caused multiple threats to their health and security, and often lacked access to basic services such as water. As part of the project the community was trained in housing and infrastructure construction, and given technical, financial and management skills. This allowed each household to construct a safe, permanent house fully serviced with electricity, household water and sanitation.
