Kabita Shrestha started her business to financially support her family.  She lives in a remote village in Sindhupalchowk with her mother and sister. She has six brothers, but they do not financially support the family. Kabita and her sister are responsible for the family’s income.

Kabita became interested in helping her community after participating in a Plan International community development program. Supported by Empower Generation, Kabita is highly motivated to contribute to her community and generate more income for her family through her solar business.
