For Hukum Bahadur Basnet of Lalmatiya village in Dang district of Nepal, one theory holds strongly – live as a master, not as slave. Having spent many years serving others in the past, he says “working for others never gave me true satisfaction. I also worked in India, but I was never happy.” With his hard work, and support from the Micro-Enterprise Development Programme (MEDEP), now he can live as a master. Basnet now owns 15 cows in his dairy.
