As the liability of each partner in the organization is unlimited, the financial institution can safely advance loan to the firms.

The contract act has defined Partnership as; "The relation which subsists between persons who have agreed to combine there property, labour  or skill in some business and to share the profits there of between them" The person who constitute this organization are individually termed as partner and collectively known as firm and the name under which their business id conducted is called the "firm name" The number of partners must not exceed twenty in ordinary business and not more then ten in banking business.            A partnership can be formed without any legal formalities like soul trader ship it is easy to form and simple to run.

There are different strengths and weakness of working in partnership like first of all you need to bring everything to notice of your partner before taking any step in business or for making any decision. You have to share profits as well as losses of business with your partner so if you go in deeply on status on partnership then you will find so many points to consider.

Often a business requires a combination of talents say, lawyers and doctors specialization in different areas. Any two or more people can get together and from a partnership. Each agrees to provide some fraction of the work and capital, to share some percentage of the profits, and of course to share the losses or debts.
Today, partnerships account for only a small fraction of total economic activity. The reason is that partnerships pose certain disadvantages that make them impractical for large businesses. The major disadvantage is unlimited liability. General partners are liable without limit for all debts contracted by the partnership. If you own 1 percent of the partnership and the business fails, you will be called upon to pay 1 percent of the bills and the other partners will be assessed their 99 percent. But if your partners cannot pay, you may be called upon to pay all the debts even if you must sell off your prize possessions to do so.
The peril of unlimited liability and the difficulty of raising funds explain why partnerships tend to be confined to small, personal enterprises such as agriculture and retail trade. Partnerships are simply too risky for most situations.

There are too many different answers for this question. Can you be more specific? Are you talking about partnership in business? Or partnership in relationship or among peers?

Basically, partnership is a situation where two or more people have some sort of an agreement together, either divided equally or in some proportion and all the parties should agree to the contract.

The strengths is that someone always has your back and is pulling you up when your down telling you that your going to get through this together
the weakness are those partners that want the other partner to do all the work and then take credit for it and are always pulling you down and not supporting what you do or want to do
