What is the Peer-to-Peer Lending Platforms Industry?

Companies in this industry provide peer-to-peer lending, which occurs directly between individuals without the intermediation of a traditional financial institution. Peer-to-peer lending is a type of crowdfunding, which is the collective effort of individuals to pool their money to support the efforts of others. Crowdfunded fundraising, in which collective money supports others with financial donations and without planned repayment or accrued interest, is not part of this industry.
