The P2P sector’s attraction to investors increased significantly in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis, when central banks around the world responded with sharp reductions to interest rates and much lower returns on conventional savings accounts. As Banks have tightened their financing processes, this fast growing financing model has revolutionized the global financial market.
Peer to peer investing is surging in popularity as investors look for investments that provide stable cash flow and higher returns and the number of platforms has continued to grow, and the range of financing options has expanded.
FinTech firms are trying to alter the small business lending market by using technology to streamline the lending process. Traditionally, banks relied on the CIBIL scores to judge the creditworthiness of potential borrowers. However, for many small businesses, analyzing their creditworthiness remains an issue.
A huge chunk of businesses depends on the grey market to meet their financing needs and stay away from banks with a notion that they are not eligible for any funds.

Lending platforms are the one-stop destination for borrowers looking for financial solutions that match their specific needs. Hence those who were denied loan by banks, because of a bad credit history, also have an easily available source of the loan.
