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

    Companies in this industry provide peer-to-peer lending, which occurs directly between individuals and organizations without the direct intermediation of a traditional financial institution. In this industry, individuals and organizations pool their money to support the efforts of borrowers, while generating a rate of return for themselves. Crowdfunded fundraising, where collective money supports others with financial donations and without planned repayment, is not part of this industry.
