Anuradhapura was once a political and religious capital of Sri Lanka that flourished for nearly 1,300 years. A city that dates back to the 5th century BC, Anuradhapura is world renowned for its rich collection of architectural wonders. It was one the most powerful kingdoms of ancient Sri Lanka, boasting a rich economic and cultural heritage. Anuradhapura which was a central point of ancient Sri Lankan civilization is almost synonymous with Sri Lanka’s irrigation system which dates back over 2000 years. Sri Lanka’s hydraulic civilization mainly developed during the Anuradhapura era, paving the way to an agricultural and cultural revolution. Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Anuradhapura today continues to make great strides towards becoming a modern, economically vibrant city.
Driven by its demand for services, the new LOLC Finance branch in Anuradhapura will cater to the financial requirements of individual customers and the diverse business community. The new branch will offer unparalleled financial solutions such as leasing, micro loans, corporate loans, all types of fixed deposits and savings. With this new move, LOLC Finance looks forward to support the budding and highly promising Micro and SME community in this region through various services and awareness programmes.
