VisionFund Lanka provides client-centric microfinance loans that are guaranteed by groups within the community, and monitored by VFL’s loan officers.

 

Agriculture and Business loans make up the majority of loans obtained by clients, with education, housing, dairy, water and sanitation also included in the portfolio.

 

PARALLEL LOANS

These loans are given to clients alongside the main loans, for child education and housing development.

 

Child Education Loan –Sisudiriya (Student Empowerment)

Loans are sought out to buy books, uniforms, shoes and to pay school fees at the beginning of each academic year. VFL introduced a loan product with an affordable repayment mechanism, enabling parents to fulfill their children’s education related needs without having to borrow from multiple sources.

 

Housing Improvement Loan –Sanasuma (Relief)

With the objective of providing improved living conditions for the children of our clients, VFL introduced the ‘Sanasuma’ Loan. This Parallel Loan acts as an incentive, for our most loyal clients.  

 

INTEGRATED PROJECT LOANS

These loans are provided to clients as a result of collaborative projects with World Vision Lanka (WVL).

Sanitation  

Shop owners are provided with a loan to purchase goods related to sanitation, thereby increasing access to instruments that enable plantation communities to maintain better sanitary standards.
