Nimal joined BMI very recently; in November 2012. He has 5 members in his family and in addition supports his elderly mother who lives with them. Nimal’s wife is working as a housemaid abroad and Nimal looks after their 3 daughters.
Nimal first loan from BMI is to expand his retail shop. He had worked as an assistant in a nearby retail shop and had started his business. However, due to lack of capital the shop has not been expanded. Using the LKR 30,000 loan, Nimal intends to expand the shop further by increasing the number of items. In addition, in future Nimal wishes to establish his shop close to a main road in one of his own buildings.
