Leelawathi is engaged in a tailoring business in a rural village called Ipalogama with her family. Because her village is located in a remote location, she struggles to get the required fabric from the city and also to meet the demand from her community for her clothes. At first she had difficulties in bearing these costs. So, she joined with BMI and received a loan of Rs. 50,000. She used the loan to purchase another sewing machine for her business. After using the new machine her production has also increased. She is earning an extra income as well.
