Expression of Interest (EoI) for Sustaining Small and Micro
Cordaid Nepal is an internationally operating value-based emergency relief and development organization. We have longstanding experiences in fighting poverty and social injustices both in the Netherlands as well as worldwide. Through our networks we work from grassroot level to national and global level. We reach out to people who want to realize a good life for all and want to act upon it. Cordaid is implementing a three-year project SRIJANA, funded by Kerk in Actie with consortium partners International Nepal Fellowship (INF) in Jumla and United Mission to Nepal (UMN) in Bajhang.
Creating Opportunities for Socio-Economic Well-being of Migrant Youths (SRIJANA) project is designed to support migrants’ returnees and youths who lost their source of income during the Covid -19 pandemic and are facing economic crisis, through quick return/high value farm and off-farm livelihood options. The overall goal of SRIJANA project is promoting dignified and self-reliant livelihoods for migrant returnees and potential migrant youths by creating market- oriented livelihoods and employment opportunities which directly contribute to SDG goal 1: end poverty in all its form everywhere and Goal 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. The project is also consistent with our strategy of economic recovery during Covid19 pandemic and the resulting impacts due to lockdowns to the migrant’s returnees and their families. The project intends to take the opportunity for reviving Nepal’s agro-based economy with the introduction of modern technology and making agriculture an enterprising occupation.
Given the scope of the project, Cordaid is inviting proposal from eligible service provider (company/firm-VAT registered) to establish the project supported small and micro enterprises and assist the entrepreneurs in making their businesses sustainable by developing practical business plan, linking with financial institutions and local governments. This means all selected enterprises are well versed in their business model, plan, approaches, market, and profit risks in their context.
If you are interested and eligible, Please go through the Terms of Reference and submit the detailed technical and financial proposal with the necessary documents mentioned in the ToR and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org within 15 days of EOI publication.
