Darshani lives in the region of Serunuwara in the Trincomalee district with her husband, daughter and mother. In order to increase the family income which earlier relied on her husband’s earnings from the army, she began a business making bricks and selling in the village for those who are building their homes.
Darshani is a new BMI customer. She has seen the benefits of investing in a small business through seeing other BMI clients at cluster meetings and thus she has applied for a loan of approximately Rs. 30,000 which she will invest in buying bulk in raw materials and ensuring that she has the necessary equipment to conduct her business in a profitable manner.
