An Introduction to Peer-to-Peer Lending

Peer-to-peer lending is a type of letting the takes place between two individuals and does not involve a traditional lender. There are many peer-to-peer services that attempt to match up borrowers and lenders. Lenders are individuals who have extra money to lend, and they are willing to do so. Borrowers are individuals who need access to money for a variety of reasons. Peer-to-peer loans can be used to start a business, cover personal expenses, pay medical expenses, or pay for anything else that is justified.

Peer-to-Peer Services

Much of the peer-to-peer lending market takes place online. There are many websites out there that promote peer-to-peer lending. These websites will allow individuals who want money to post information about themselves and their need on the website. Lenders will then be able to bid on the loan by bidding a lower interest rate. The lender that bids the lowest interest rate will win the bid. 

The money will then be transferred from the lender to the borrower through the peer-to-peer lending company. The company will then collect payments from the borrower every month and transfer them to the lender.
