5 Indian P2P lending platforms to seek instant loans from
By Gloria Mathias
Peer-to-peer (P2P) lending, also known as social lending or crowdfunding, is a financial innovation that enables individuals to lend and borrow money directly from one another without the involvement of traditional financial intermediaries like banks. This form of lending operates through online platforms that match borrowers with lenders, facilitating the entire lending process.
Recognising its potential, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has shown interest in regulating the digital lending space, balancing innovation with consumer protection. The RBI observes the potential of these platforms to enhance financial inclusion by providing credit to individuals and small businesses that may have limited access to traditional banking services.
Looking ahead to 2024, the lending space is expected to undergo further evolution, with several trends likely to shape its trajectory.
Listed below are 5 emerging P2P lending platforms simplifying loan offerings in India:
