Lanka ORIX Leasing Company PLC (LOLC) – the leading total financial solutions provider in Sri Lanka – recently welcomed a new addition to its network of regional branches, when its newest branch was ceremonially opened in Ambalangoda.
Mrs. Kalsha Amarasinghe, Executive Director of the LOLC Group graced this momentous occasion as the Guest of Honour.

LOLC, pioneered the concept of leasing and factoring in Sri Lanka, thereby adding a new dimension to the financial services sector at the time. It also played a vital role in developing the SME sector by providing them with finance facilities Tailor-made for their businesses.

Furthermore, LOLC entered the Microfinance sector a couple of years ago in order to uplift this sector and has made significant strides in terms of expanding its reach to all regions of the country, including the North and the East through its Isuru Diriya Centers which are set up at local post offices consequent to an agreement entered into with Sri Lanka Post. This operation has enabled LOLC’s microfinance operation to successfully reach the grass root level community and provide them with the financial support required to uplift their lives.
LOLC sees much potential in the town of Ambalangoda and is looking at playing a vital role in further developing the business community of this area.
