I come from Rolpa, Nepal.
Sita Tamang migrated to Kathmandu from Rolpa to escape from the clutches of poverty, and in the search for better opportunities. She had been educated only till 7th grade so to earn a living she first learned how to make necklaces by working at a jewellery handicraft centre. Later, sensing the potential in candles, she made a livelihood by making candles along with three other women who were trained by the Business Support Centre (BSC). The candles they crafted were sold in a local market on weekends. Sita then started her own company with an initial investment of NPR. 5000/-
