Entrepreneur Ghimire comes up with inspiring memoirs


By A Staff Reporter,Kathmandu, June 3: Entrepreneur Shiva Prasad Ghimire has come up with his memoirs to tell his business journey that started with a modest beginning and expanded to multiple fields from education, media, petroleum products, tea, hydropower to electric vehicles. 

Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Sudan Kirati launched the book at a programme organised in Lalitpur on Friday. 

Ghimire had begun his entrepreneurial journey from Hetaunda in Makwanpur district which is now the capital of Bagmati Province as well. 

He began his business career in Hetaunda and later ran a departmental store in Bhainse Ward no. 4 in Makwanpur where he earned almost double profits. Later he also joined politics and became the chairman of the Bhainse Village Development Committee in the first local elections after the restoration of democracy in 1990. 

Currently, Ghimire family runs more than 80 companies across the country and employs more than 2,200 people in them. This success had begun when he was just 15 years of age when he ran a grocery shop in Hetaunda, Pipalbot, in 2037 BS (1981 AD). He earned lots of accolades from the local businessmen and seniors because he was running the business while continuing his high-school studies as well. 

To materialise his dream to expand the business he shifted his date of birth three years back in order to obtain a driving license so that he could increase his mobility with the riding of a motorbike. Then there were only successes with every business he tried including hydropower and automobile. 

He became the president of the eastern region of Petroleum Dealers Association and later national president. Ghimire now runs the highest number of LP Gas bottling plants in Nepal and leads SG Group as well as a committee at the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI). 

The book published by Ghost Writing Nepal includes five chapters: life journey, trade to politics, petrol pump to electric vehicles, current philosophy and views of people who know Ghimire. 

This book can be inspirational to many youths who aspire to become entrepreneurs and contribute to the economic growth of their society and country.
