Junaideen lives in a village in Thampalamgam in the Trincomalee district with her husband (in the picture) and children. She is earning a monthly income of approximately Rs. 30,000/-.
She has a canteen selling food to nearby villagers and a retail store and has been operating this business for several years. She has seen the benefit of investing in her business by attending BMI cluster meetings and by her previous BMI loan of Rs 30,000 in 2011. Thus Junaideen wishes to expand her business through purchasing more goods at a bulk discount rate by taking out a loan of Rs 50,000. She knows that this timely investment will enable her to increase her profitability and allow her to take care of her family.
