Bidushi Adhikari

I have thoroughly enjoyed conducting this research at the Ministry of Industries, Commerce, and Supplies and gaining an opportunity to collaborate closely with my supervisor and other officials involved in the program. There have been some hiccups along the way, including an unverified database, difficulty contacting MEs, and a lack of adequate software, but overall, I hope that I have been able to contribute something concrete towards the understanding of the implementation of the Microenterprise Development Model and some gaps that can be filled. 

I have found that governmental stakeholders are ready to collaborate, offer assistance and expertise where necessary, and value the skills, knowledge, and insights that I was able to bring to the research project. This has led me to question my assumptions about the apparent apathy of government officials, and it’s an affirmation that Nepali youth can contribute productively towards governmental initiatives.
