Jayantha’s story: After finishing My Degree, I did several jobs; I could not get any successful results from them. But Finally I thought to start the garment factory with my sister, because she has a skill to sew garments. Those days I had little amount of money by doing previous jobs. Then I bought a sewing marching to my business. But after starting business we had to close it several times because of financial problems. Therefore one day I went to RDB bank to talk about loan scheme. Then I got a loan and bought a building sell garments. But I felt my business was little bit messy. That time I met the SED at District Secretariat Office. They helped me a lot to develop my business up to this level
