Tashi Delek to all the successful candidates. We look forward to working with you. We are thankful to all the applicants that submitted their proposals and hope to see you apply again for our fall call for business proposals.

We would also like to thank UNDP Bhutan for their generous support on the Loden-UNDP Bhutan Climate Change funding window. 

The Loden Foundation would like to clarify that although the shortlisted candidates were informed about their selection in March, the selection process was delayed due to challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Selection at the time was impractical not only because of difficulties in importing raw materials and equipment but more importantly because the panel of judges felt that the shortlisted businesses could not be started immediately at the peak of the pandemic.

For any inquiries on the selection process, you may contact Mr. Lhakpa, Programme Officer – LEP, at office phone 7719-5599 or email at lhakpa@loden.org during office hours.
