Hey. It’s Brady again.
Some of you already know this: KrASIA has a sibling publication called Oasis, which seeks out interesting people doing interesting things to tell the stories of their personal and professional journeys. Some of Oasis’ content lives on our site.
One recent entry is an interview with the founders of Aeloi, a startup that gives Nepal’s women new ways to access financial resources.
