Migration to Delhi is an important fact of life for people in Far West Nepal. Migrants invest their savings in financial self- help associations. Part of These savings are remitted back home. Yet the infrastructure for remittances is Sub optimal, so migrants carry their savings back home. In light of the worsening political situation in Far West Nepal, the risks of this handcarry system are increasing. This paper explores the issues related to migration between Far West Nepal and Delhi, migrants’ participation in financial self- help associations, and the impact that these systems have on remittance patterns.
