Namaste! My name is Laxmi, but most people simply call me Didi, which means sister in Nepali and is the common form of addressing an adult woman. So all my female co-workers are called Didi here.
According to the Nepali calendar I was born in the year 2037, which is 1974 according to your calendar. I never attended school because of my family’s financial situation and my parents didn’t think child education was important during those days.
I was needed for house and field work to support my family. I have 1 sons. My husband works as a rickshaw driver. I started working at Sapana Village Lodge as a kitchen helper, but now work as the supervising room attendant. I very much enjoy being a part of Sapana Village’s family. It is my ambition to do my work well.
