Dawaheer is from a rural village known as Maha Illuppalama in the Ippologama area in the Anuradhapura District. She earns a monthly average income of LKR 15,000/-. Dawaheer has now requested for her third loan of LKR 75,000/- to develop the business. She intends to purchase new young calf, dairy feed and further improve the shed and overall state of the farm.
