Recognizing the importance of small and medium scale entrepreneurs to the growth of our national economy, Hatton National Bank is now positioning itself as the Small & Medium Enterprise Development Partner of SMEs islandwide in an attempt to foster sustainable development in Sri Lanka. Offering a full range of financial solutions together with all the benefits and advantages that only HNB can offer, this endeavour provides individuals engaged in different types of businesses with the opportunity to realize their full potential and achieve their goals of business expansion and personal growth. In line with His Excellency the President's vision of making Sri Lanka the next "Miracle of Asia", this endeavour revolutionizes SME banking by providing small and medium scale entrepreneurs with a stable economic platform on which they can start or expand their businesses.
Launched with the intention of raising small and medium scale enterprises to a national level by building a stronger and more structured SME community, HNB has specially tailored the benefits offered by this programme for our country's budding industrialists. Widely acknowledged as a positive and very significant contributor to the overall economy and development of the country, SMEs have made their impact felt by creating employment opportunities, increasing exports and by generating a higher national revenue each year.
Classified as any enterprise with a published sales turnover of less than LKR 140 Million, SMEs have long since made their impact felt on the national consciousness and today play a pivotal role in the economic growth and development of our nation. As the Small & Medium Enterprise Development Partner of Sri Lankan entrepreneurs, HNB will initially start this venture by offering support to new, existing and start up ventures in the agro industries, animal husbandry, horticulture, food processing, fisheries, construction, wood based products, retail and other small service business categories.
