A loan of $450 helped to develop fruit and vegetable business.


Dalsi's story

Dalsi is a 37-year-old married woman living in Kiyanduwa, Akurassa, with her husband and one child.

Dalsi’s husband has a business selling vegetables and fruit from a shop in her town of Akurassa. She is also a partner in his business. She has been operating this business for five years, so she has lots of experience in this type of business. She knows all the local vegetables and fruits very well as a result of her experience.

Dalsi has asked for a 50,000 LKR loan from BRAC Sri Lanka in order to further develop her fruit and vegetable business.

Dalsi is honest and careful in the business. She hopes to provide a nutritious diet to her family through the additional income her business generates.

Thank you for taking the time to consider supporting this Sri Lankan loan!
