Karnali, July 26
The UNDP has introduced a new plan to promote self-employment programme for those people affected by the COVID-19.
A total of 150 such persons have been selected for the programme who would be encouraged and assisted for running small scale and cottage industries.
Federation of Nepal Cottage and Small Industries (FNCSI) Acting Chief Kabiraj Khatri shared that COVID-19 affected people were categorized as foreign returnees and those from marginalized and impoverished communities.
“Professional and skill-oriented training would be provided to the selected ones so that they could run their own business,” informed Khattri.
