Bimala Gurung

I come from Tehrathum, Nepal.

Bimala was born in Tehrathum and came to Kathmandu in search of work. In Kathmandu, she learned Dhaka weaving and joined New SADLE in 2054 B.S. as a Dhaka weaver and has been working here since then. She is married to a person from Pokhara and has two sons. However, they are living separately now due to the difference in their opinions though not divorced. With her income, she is able to support herself and her children’s education. New SADLE has shown her a way to being self-dependent and is happy with her work now.
