Mercy Corps exists to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities. Beginning in 2008, WPF supported the “Expanding Access to Finance” (EAF) project in the Eastern highlands of Nepal implemented in partnership with Nirdhan Utthan Bank, Ltd (NUBL) and Mercy Corps. The partnership proved remarkably impactful as NUBL took a strong and disciplined approach to expansion of financial services in the hills of the Eastern highlands, and Mercy Corps provided various and valuable projects in regards to agriculture cultivation and value chains. The project term was from September 2008 – August 2011.
