Dilrukshi recently joined BMI with the intention of starting a dairy business at domestic level. She wishes to obtain a loan of LKR 25,000 to buy a cow as a start. She mentioned that there is ample space available in her home garden to rear the cow and there would be enough space for expansion as well.
Her house is situated in Helamada area, in Kegalle District and she lives there with her husband and three children. Two of them are still toddlers and eldest is studying in grade two. Her husband is a wage laborer in a nearby estate and at present their household income is around LKR 15,000, which is barely enough for living.
Dilrukshi is a determined woman who strives to improve their living standard by supporting her husband. She hopes to earn a steady income from selling milk and earn an additional income for the family. Her dreams and ambitions are all focused on her children for whom she wants to build a good future.
