Nepal being a least developed country has abundant scope of micro finance services that will help in generating income of people below in the poverty line. Nepal, since 1974, has been undertaking different micro financing models to cater the credit need of the rural poor thereby involving them in income generation. Apart from this, the existing micro finance services are mostly concentrated their activities in Tarai (Plain) areas. The Hills and mountain areas are not yet accessed by such financial services. In this background, Naya Nepal Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha has been established to provide financial services to the poor people of Hill, Mountain and Tarai areas of the Mid and Eastern Region of the country.
