Home / Stories / Bachkali


Bachkali is an active farmers’ group member living in Jima, in the far west of Nepal. With our support, Bachkali has developed a lush vegetable garden and a mushroom farm which has begun to yield sprouting mushrooms.

Here is what she has to share about her experience in her own words:

This whole month I have been selling 5-10 kilos of tomatoes every day from my garden in the new jeep station market. It is very empowering to make my own money right in the village. In addition to producing nutritious vegetable for my family I have been able to sell the surplus. I have gained respect and trust from my family and locality as a ‘role model’ woman. Thank you for giving me important skills and resources to create better livelihoods for the people from remote communities like this. My mushrooms are also ready to harvest and my family members are amazed at how, using the right techniques, we only need rice straw and seeds to grow lots of nutritious mushrooms.”
