K.T.D. Jayatilake operates a tea plant nursery in the Dehiowita region in the Sabaragamuwa province in Sri Lanka.
Since 2008 Jayatilake has run this small business with a monthly earning of Rs. 12,000/-. In May 2010 she first became a BMI client by taking out a loan of Rs 25,000 in order to set up her business. Due to the success of this, in August 2011 she took out a further loan of Rs 50,000 knowing that this investment will benefit her business. She now wishes to obtain a BMI loan, valued at Rs. 75,000/-, to help her purchase a greater level of plant stocks and thereby increase in sales output.
