Thank you for taking time to consider supporting this Sri Lankan loan!
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.
