Important of citizenship

Shanti Danuwar
Posted April 12, 2021 from Nepal

She is a 29-year-old married Dalit woman. Her family has not registered her citizenship or marriage after five years of fear of marriage. 2 sons and 1 daughter have been living apart from the Lear family. Mother-in-law used to threaten to remarry her son if she did not bring dowry. It costs money for community leaders to become citizens. If not, they give some money to the leaders. But citizenship has not been established. She has not received any service from the ward office or municipality. she became a member of the young women group . She learned about harmful traditional  practices     by sitting in groups. She told the group about the problems ,she faced during the construction process as she did not have citizenship. She was not able to stay in the microfinance development bank as she did not have citizenship. She managed to get citizenship with the help of the organization. Now, she has opened a small shop in front of her house by taking loans and saving in four microfinance institutions. From that, his family is doing well.
