Returnee migrant worker turns into entrepreneur

2022 Dec 02, 7:35, Kathmandu

Sagar Chhetri, 31, of Bhimdutta municipality-18 in the district of Kanchanpur had a job eight years ago when he was doing his bachelor’s degree. But, that did not bode well for his prospects. He even did not have enough fund and ideas to invest.

Disappointed with the job he had, Sagar left for UAE in search of a job.

Sagar worked for three years in UAE and returned planning to do something back home.

Now, he has established Bindhabasini Micro-Enterprise to produce bamboo furniture, Calamus Tenuis (Bet) furniture and broom of Thysanolaena (Amriso) by investing some 2 million rupees that he earned from foreign employment.

“I worked in a petrol pump for three years in UAE. After returning home from there, I chose to stay at home instead of leaving for foreign migration. As my father was an employee of Forest Office, I started this business with his suggestions,” Sagar shared.

Sagar has leased a land plot to run the factory for which he pays Rs 155,000 in rent for a year.
