Much of South Asian Trade Link success can be subscribed to the founders’, Mr. Bhagawati Budhathoki, and family, vision for continuous improvements and growth in order to support local development with current employment of over 40 staff, including several from families of political martyrs and indigenous people.
Apart from this, the South Asian Trade Link as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has provided scholarships to two students each year from the remote districts of Nepal.
Since June 2021, South Asian Trade Link has been promoting the Just Say No to Plastic Bags campaign along with Kathmandu University and Nagarik & República. Customers wishing to use plastic bags will be charged Rs. 1 per bag while the environment-friendly bag will be available for Rs. 20.
