Samurdhi card holders are afforded an opportunity to purchases consumer goods from Coop Cities.
Hitherto Samurdhi beneficiaries were entitled only make purchases for their cards only from the Cooperatives within their area. Also the goods that they could purchase were limited. The Medawachchiya Multipurpose Cooperative Society has given an opportunity to make their purchases from Coop City outlets, minimizing the difficulties that they had earlier experienced. The conduct of transactions of this Cooperative Society has also been computerized. The introduction of this programme took place under the auspices of Minister Tissa Karaliyadda.
