Survivors of the 2015 earthquake are now facing problems with debt. The government offered some financial assistance to those whose homes were destroyed or damaged, but that only covered 30-50% of the cost of rebuilding. In the worst affected areas, 75% of the people who rebuilt homes did so with loans that they are now struggling to pay off. Even the government is experiencing the same struggles as they took loans from other nations to help rebuild infrastructure and temples. Pray for creative solutions to break free from these financial burdens (The Bible, Proverbs 13:11).
