About Chandrawathi Wedalage

Chandrawathi is a small scale farmer who is a member of BMI from 2012, November. She is taking a LKR 30,000 loan in order to develop her cultivation business, to buy seeds, agro chemical and fertilizer. She mainly cultivates crops such as Corn, Manioc, Banana, Chilies, Sweet Potatoes and Vegetables. She had been involved in farming over a year and at present her monthly income is around LKR 15,000. Chandrawathi’s husband is a tapper at a rubber plantation and they have one son. The son had finished his secondary education and follows a vocational training course. The rubber tapping income is not sufficient to meet the household financial needs and additional income from the cultivation help to meet the gap. Chandrawathie is also involved in the social work, where she is an active member of Death Benevolence Society in her village as well. Chandrawathi hopes to diversify the crops cultivated to obtain an income through-out the year, and she hopes to raise some money and complete her house construction.
