After days of protests, microfinance victims and government representatives have reached a six-point agreement to address the concerns of people overburdened by microfinance loans.

The agreement was signed on Friday at the Ministry of Finance after talks between a government team and representatives of those affected by predatory lending practices. Narayan Prasad Risal of the Ministry of Finance and Punaram (Maniram) Gyawali, coordinator for the protesters, were the signatories.

The agreement comes in response to widespread demonstrations in Kathmandu by microfinance victims. To address the issue, the Ministry of Finance formed a dialogue committee led by Risal, inviting representatives of those affected for negotiations.
