Started in 1993, a microfinance program entitled Self-help Banking (SBP) had became a landmark program in supporting deprived women of grassroot level through the provision of micro credit and savings facilities based on group guarantee. With an aim to provide the poor women with more sustainable microfinance services and enhance the credibility of the institution, CSD took initiative to promote SWBBL together with  renowned commercial banks- Nepal Investment Bank Ltd., Himalayan Bank Ltd., Nabil Bank Ltd. as well as individual promoters committed for poverty reduction.
