DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY To Make a Difference

The strength of BMI's partnerships has played a crucial role in our success story. Over the years, BMI has consistently created new partnerships with a range of local and international bilateral organizations and development agencies. In addition to funding, partnerships have also facilitated the transfer of technical knowledge.

A significant proportion of grants to BMI are received from, Stromme Microfinance Asia Gurantee Ltd, Sri Lanka Savings Bank, DFCC Bank and Hatton National Bank.

In addition, during 2013, new grants were received from Helpage and Credit Agricole creating new partnerships with these organizations.
