Mahila Kalyan Savings and Credit Cooperative Ltd (MKSCCL)

History and Key Successes of the Organisation

A Brief History of the Organisation

Traditionally there has been a large number of woman involved in household work but very few involved in the economic and social sector in Bajhang. Three of the staff from a programme which focused on the empowerment of women realised that without economic empowerment, social empowerment would not be possible. One day they decided to share their ideas among other women of Chainpur. Following this they called a mass meeting which 75 women in Chainpur attended and they made the decision to formulate a cooperative which they registered in Kailali under the Cooperative Act 2048 in 2006.

MKSCCL was looking for some support in cooperative management as most of them were unclear as to how to run a cooperative. United Mission to Nepal agreed to support MKSCCL, training them in good leadership and governance skills.
