Critics of MicrocreditRepayments are generally due on loans from the first week after they are taken out, which does not give the borrower enough time to establish any form of incomeearning enterprise.Microfinance is not without its critics. Some argue that people can quickly sink into a cycle of debt, with many lenders charging exorbitant rates of interest. The control women have over their microloans decreases over timeBecause field officers are judged on repayment rates, they sometimes use coercive and even violent tactics to collect instalments on the microcredit loans.By James Melik Reporter, Business Daily, BBC World Service 9. Difficulties of exporting the modelIn India, microlenders cannot accept deposits due to local banking regulations. These cash-strapped microlenders have to turn to local banks or rely on government grants. This source of capital is usually unstable, insufficient or too expensiveDespite the banks success in Bangladesh, little success has been achieved in exporting the Grameen Bank Model to other poverty-stricken areasBy James Melik Reporter, Business Daily, BBC World Service 10.
