Wickamanaya is a 59 year old spice manufacturer. She has one machine for spice making. She collects different types of raw material for spices from the local market and after grinding them, she makes separate packets of spices to sell to shops nearby.
She has three daughters and one son. Her husband and daughter also support her business. Unfortunately she does not have sufficient money to continue her business, so she is asking for a loan of 30000 LKR to help grow her business.
Due to Sri Lanka’s central bank regulations, there is a chance that you may not receive repayment on this loan for up to 12 months after the repayment has been collected by the field partner. Bank regulations in Sri Lanka stipulate that US Dollars cannot leave the country for 12 months. However, Kiva’s net billing system, under normal circumstances will allow for more timely repayment.
