BACKGROUND

A devastating earthquake hit Nepal on April 25th, 2015, causing large-scale destruction to lives and properties in the country’s Gorkha district. The damage paralyzed economic markets, particularly secondary markets, making access to essential goods and services extremely challenging for those affected by the quake. The district’s main economy was able to recover quickly, owing to less damage to supply chain and better access to supplies, but the secondary markets with poorly constructed shops in the mountain lowlands suffered major losses.
