Community-Based Restaurant

     In the Kirtipur municipality there are many private enterprises but my study was based in community-based entrepreneurship that was NEWA LAHANA which was run by Newar community of Kirtipur. These community-based enterprises included 71 households who were directly and indirectly beneficiaries in the community. Thus, the researcher had tried to find out the socio-economic impact of CBE(community-based enterprises) in local women and there were all total 40 women engaged at Newa Lahana as employees. Thus, whole universe was taken as sample population therefore total women were the theoretical samplepopulation of study.
