Creating Financial Security Together in Sri Lanka

Creating Financial Security Together in Sri Lanka

T. Eswary, a mother and wife in Deniyaya, Sri Lanka, credits Savings & Loan Groups for Women as the source of much prosperity and happiness in her life. While her husband works as a laborer, T. Eswary runs a poultry farm from home to keep her family afloat. Last year, she bought more hens and feed to expand her farm with the help of a small loan.

Now T. Eswary is the president of the Sooryodayam Savings & Loan Group in her local community. “I would be happy to say that after joining this group, I have improved my interpersonal skills and social bonds. I feel that now I’m more friendly to others than I used to be,” she says. “I hope that this program will benefit as many groups as possible like us.” Creating Financial Security Together in Sri Lanka
