Kirupamalar is a previous BMI client from the Serunuwara area in the Trincomalee district where she lives with her family. Her family was entirely reliant on her husband’s income, therefore she growing vegetables in the garden and selling to villagers in the area.
She took out a loan of Rs 25,000 in October 2011 which resulted in increased profitability for her business. Because of this, she now wishes to invest in her business and has applied for a loan of Rs 50,000. She knows this timely investment will enable her to increase her profitability by purchasing more fertilizer and seedlings at a bulk discount rate.
