In June 2011 I visited and photographed Harikala Yogi, the owner of a mango pickle business in western Nepal. At that time she had received two loans from Mercy Corps’ microfinance banking partner to help with her business. This week I paid Harikala another visit. I gave her some prints from my previous trip and discovered that her business continues and has expanded to sell new products. She now also sells honey, different fruit pickles, and dried citrus zest. This was the first time I’ve gone back to visit someone I’ve photographed before. I loved it. (Top left photo is one of the 2011 photos, and the rest are from this trip.) #nepal #mercycorps  (at Nepal)
