Aaron Djekic's curator insight, July 19, 4:47 PM

For traditional loans, applicants need a credit score above 700 to be eligible for approval. Although numerous options exist for those denied by the banks, debt crowdfunding has emerged as a popular and viable choice for those in need of personal and professional financing. This is because leading peer-to-peering lenders like Prosper advertise rates for scores below 640; even those in poorer conditions can find opportunities to request a loan.

P2P crowdfunding portals can take risks banks cannot. Their rules are less stringent and all overhead costs are kept to a minimum. Since platforms operate solely online, such services can also pull third-party information to form fuller borrow profiles. The fact that loans rest on the shoulders of multiple investor spreads the risk as well, a factor contributing to bigger loans. Above all else, debt crowdfunding investors are more inclined to consider a borrower’s backstory in the lending decision.
