What is marketplace lending?

Marketplace lending (also called peer-to-peer lending, social lending or crowd lending) is the common term for debt-based crowdfunding, which is an investment into an individual, business or project where the offering is a set return on investment over a predetermined timeframe. These lending opportunities are found on online marketplace lending portals pairing investors (lenders) with borrowers according to agreed-upon loan parameters.
