Shanmugawe had a very small fruit stall but the income from business was not sufficient and therefore; started the business of purchasing wood, and making furniture later on. He is the only bread winner of the family and has two sons. He is also a active member in the community work and a member of the death benevolence society as well.
His carpentry business was started in year 2012. The business premises is located close to the main road and continuous business is guaranteed. Initially, they have just sawed timber and sold them and now they have used the support of a carpenter to make furniture and sell them as well.
Shanmugawe joined Berendina in year 2010 and this is his second loan. The first loan was obtained for the existing fruit stall while he obtained the second loan to start the new business. Using the loan capital Shanmugawe plan to expand the business by purchasing additional timber and making furniture.
