Rita's Life Takes a Turn for the Better
Rita is a young widow who was at the lowest point in her life before joining BSF's family-strengthening program. Her life has since taken a turn for the better, which she feels is like a dream come true.
After just three years of marriage, Rita’s husband tragically passed away in a bus accident. Rita did the best she could to keep going while living with her daughter in Jharuwarasi, Nepal. She didn't have a job and felt like she didn't have any skills either. There was no one to help her. She started facing major financial difficulties. It became hard for her to meet even the basic needs of her family.
At the lowest point in her life, BSF heard of her situation and invited Rita to join the program. She was so grateful for the opportunity. After participating in BSF's 'Money Management, Planning, and Budgeting' training, Rita became motivated to start her own business. Despite feeling like she had no skills or education, BSF encouraged and supported her to reach out for her dream.
After planning and preparation with BSF, Rita decided to start a tea shop. BSF supported her with all that she needed to get her business going. She even added a local street food stall alongside which BSF helped her with.
Rita has been working hard to build up her business and is now seeing the fruit of her labours. She is earning more money to provide for her family and is able to take care of all her daughter's needs.
Rita said, “I am so glad to be participating in the BSF program. This is like a dream come true for me. I can’t thank everyone enough for this wonderful opportunity.”
