P2P loans have a number of advantages over conventional bank or non-bank loans. Which ones are the key ones and which companies mediate or previously mediated P2P loans in our country?
One of the most important advantages of P2P loans is their interest. They operate here on a slightly different principle than traditional bank or non-bank loans. E.g. For a market leader, Lite Lender has a credit rating, according to which the relevant interest rate is set and, logically, the higher the risk of default, the higher the interest. Clients with minimal risk then have very low interest rates, which are even more advantageous than with a bank.
Higher chance of application approval
On the other hand, applicants with a worse rating get worse interest, on the other hand they have a chance to get a loan – again, there is an advantage over banks, which usually have stricter conditions and more people will not pass through their network. Compared to non-banking companies, P2P loans are much more advantageous, except for the first free loans, where the maximum amount of credit is very limited and the loan is only short-term.
They are absolutely safe
With P2P loans you don’t have to worry about fraud – individual operators must have a license from the Well National Bank and everything is absolutely safe, proven and legal.
Wide credit line
With its credit line, P2P loans are more like bank loans, for example, the market leader, Lite Lender offers up to USD 750,000, and for other operators the upper limit is in the range of hundreds of thousands of crowns. This is of course related to the maximum maturity, which is usually from 60 to 84 months. The exact length of the maturity can be set by the borrower himself according to his needs and repayment ability.
Thanks to P2P loans you can even earn
P2P loans are not only interesting for those who need to borrow money – they are also a great and unique opportunity for investors, not only for people with high capital, but also for ordinary citizens who have no investment experience and would like to try it with minimal risk . P2P loans are the perfect way to try to invest, with just a few hundred.
