      An internally displaced woman works on the weaving loom she received through the micro-economic initiatives programme that the ICRC and the Nepal Red Cross Society operated between 2006 and 2009. The programme enabled over 5,000 families to earn a living. Bijay, one of the beneficiaries, said: "All I needed was a little push and MEI assistance was that push. From then on I have not looked back, only forward and invested the earnings from the project to expand."
