More than 300,000 people had visited Jaffna Muttraveli grounds to view the Enterprise Sri Lanka Exhibition held there upto its third day on Monday. It said the Entrepreneurship Zone which is the main zone of the Enterprise Sri Lanka Exhibition is drawing the biggest public response. By the end of the third day on Monday nearly 2000 people had obtained initial registration to obtain Enterprise Sri Lanka state interest relief loans from state banks in the zone to realise their enterprise ambitions.

Actual granting of loans would be handled by branches of state banks situated in the respective residential areas of the applicants. Special attention had been drawn here towards loan schemes such as ‘Ran Aswenna’ and ‘Govi Navoda’ aimed to transform agriculture into commercialisation and mechanisation.

On a proposal made by Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera a special program has been implemented to enable war widows and rehabilitated combatants to obtain Enterprise Sri Lanka loans without hassle. A two day workshop in this connection will be held at the Jaffna District Secretariat on Friday and Saturday
