The Onwards Model
1. Empowering Local Business
Onwards lends to develop or improve tourism-based businesses, such as small hotels, restaurants, guide organizations, and artisans.
2. Supporting Local Business
Our trips support these businesses (ie stay in their bed and breakfasts, eat at their restaurants).
3. Sharing Responsibility
Onwards collects repayments on loans ONLY from a percentage of the income provided through our trips.
4. Ensuring Success and Sustainability
Trip revenue ensures loan repayments, covers administrative costs of lending, funds the loan pool, and creates a sustainable and replicable process.
