erstwhile even if we know the business opportunity or potential we cannot doing much. Because of this, we do not have enough working capital, and the interest rate is also very high in place. After joining LOLC for the first time also we can expand our family business with a low-interest rate. And after 4 years passed we had some wealth due to LOLC’s financial support of our business.
