Bashu his a family of 10 people and he is the only one in the family who earns some money. Like many members of our company, he is also the permanent residence of Phulkharka Dhading. Being born in a remote land he never gets a chance of attending school. There was no school when he was a child. He still says, he wishes he had a chance to study. But now he sent his sons and daughter to school. He says I didn’t get that opportunity but I am glad that my sons and daughter have the chance to educate themselves. Having the responsibility for such a giant family he always has problems and mostly they are monetary. He and his family are full-time farmers. They grow all different crops to feed the family. And we also give him priority on the work. Working as a porter form our company he earns some cash which he can use to buy clothes for his family, buy medicine, and other necessary things.
Bashu is on is 40, but he is a very charming guy. He knows how to joke. He is very active and always ready to serve. As being a professional farmer he is a skinny little guy but full of strength.
