This paper identifies individual factors that drive the propensity of a person to become an informal investor, embedded into the local context of lower layer super output areas - communities of around 1,500 people, characterised by the different level of deprivation, across the business cycle between 2007-2012 in England. It is hypothesised that the strength of the relationship with the borrower, enhanced by the conditions within the local area, will be particularly significant during the economic slowdown.
