    1. Hello Sir,
      You can load funds to eSewa through internet/mobile banking. If you don’t have internet/mobile banking you can go to any of our “Cash Points” near you and ask them to load money for you in exhcange for cash. You can also visit any of our partner banks and fill the eSewa counter deposit slips available at their deposit counters.
