Asiyaummah lives in a village in Thampalamgam in the Trincomalee district with her family. She is earning a monthly income of approximately Rs. 30,000/-.
She has a tailoring business and has been operating this business for several years. In 2012 she was able to invest in her business through a BMI loan of Rs. 30,000/-. Because of the success of this endeavour Asiyammah wishes to expand her business through purchasing more material and thread 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.
