Thanuja is a 30-year-old married woman living with her husband. She has a 2-year-old child. Her husband assists with her business and they are very close. They have a grocery shop where she is selling items to local customers and villagers for their daily consumption. She started this business three years ago.
Thanuja has requested a 20,000 rupee (LKR) loan from BRAC Sri Lanka to purchase items for her grocery shop and expand her business. She is grateful for BRAC because of the financial support it provides to her.
Thank you for taking the time to consider supporting this Sri Lankan loan!
Due to Sri Lanka’s central bank regulations, there is a chance that you may not receive repayment on this loan for up to 12 months after the repayment has been collected by the field partner. Bank regulations in Sri Lanka stipulate that US Dollars cannot leave the country for 12 months. However, Kiva’s net billing system, under normal circumstances will allow for more timely repayment.
