Biratnagar is the second largest city in Nepal and leads in terms of industry. Because of political instability, the financial crisis, load shedding and strikes, the once prosperous city is having to close down many of its factories leaving thousands jobless and penniless. The political circumstance is paying a toll on the people of Nepal who are now facing some of their hardest times. Biratnagar, Nepal.

 

This is one of the few factories still running and barely getting by. The workers have to put up with the ancient machines and unsatisfactory working conditions.
