LOLC, Sri Lankaís most valuable and globally diversified financial conglomerate, posted a record-breaking performance for the 2020/21 financial year, achieving unprecedented bottom line results of Rs. 57Bn in Profit Before Tax (PBT), and a Profit After Tax (PAT) of Rs. 53Bn - a first for any corporate in the country. By achieving profits on this massive scale in the history of Sri Lankaís corporate world, the Group was able to consolidate its position as the top most profitable diversified corporate in the country, three years in a row - establishing LOLC as one of the largest Micro and Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) platforms in the world.

The LOLC Group is engaged in leisure, plantations, agri-inputs, renewable energy, construction and real estate, manufacturing and trading, technology, research & innovation and other strategic investments. As a leading player in Sri Lankaís MSME sector, the LOLC Group has been a catalyst in facilitating financial inclusion, whilst striving to maximise environmental benefits through green operations and processes in line with its triple bottom line focus.

Having established a high performance microfinance business model, LOLC rapidly exported its expertise to global markets such as Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Philippines, Pakistan, Zambia, Nigeria, Malawi, Tajikistan and Tanzania, bringing prosperity to people at the bottom of the pyramid. In addition, the Group has established its footprint in the Maldives, Mauritius and Sierra Leone in the arena of Non-Financial Services. Over the years, the Group has been backed strongly by Development Finance Institutions and multilateral funding lines, which reflects the confidence these global entities place in the Groupís sustainable operations.
