Women vendors of Nepal

March 15, 2017


In this photograph taken on February 2, 2017, vegetable vendors arrive to sell vegetables at a market in Birendranagar, Surkhet District, some 520km west of Kathmandu. At the break of dawn each day, dozens of women forced to flee their homes during Nepal's decade-long civil war load their bicycles with vegetables and head to market. The bikes, donated by a foreign charity, have given these women in the Surkhet Valley independence and a livelihood, lifting many out of poverty. (AP/RSS)
