Aslin is a 60-year-old woman who is widowed with three children aged from 30 to 36. She lives in Hikkaduwa, a town along the southern coast of Sri Lanka.

Aslin has a tailoring business and, at the moment, she is running the business from her house and receives help from her eldest daughter. Her other children are married. She is a very active and a hard worker, which helps her with her customers. She has lots of experience in this type of business.

Aslin is seeking a 30,000 LKR loan from BRAC Sri Lanka to buy thread, clothes, and a new sewing machine. In the future, she hopes to eventually open up her own shop, so she does not have to perform her tailoring services from her house.

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