What is Peer-2-Peer Lending?
Peer-2-peer Lending or ‘P2P Lending’ is defined as the online transfer of money between the lender and the borrower, bypassing the traditional banking channel. Since past 10 years P2P Lending has been raging among borrowers looking for quick unsecured money, especially borrowers with bad credit score. Some of the top P2P contenders in India include Lendbox, LenDenClub, i2iFunding etc. However, there are other factors like security, interest rates and risks involved while applying for a personal loan.
All about Qbera
