Efficient and easy going

What do you think of the information on the Lendahand website?

I like the Q&A section and I scrolled through the projects which is interesting.
I would recommend you can search based on either continent or country though.
The English text has too many typos - this needs to be addressed.
Not sure where I can find info about the projects once they matured ?

I would like to stay informed in the projects I'm investing in. Is there any such information on the webpages?

It's good and intuitive. The only two exceptions to that are that the e-wallet overview doesn't include projects that I invested in but haven't started yet and the fact that I sometimes need to wait...

The transparency regarding defaults and your own margins is exceptional. This way I can imagine, how much the end borrower finally pays, which is very hard on other platforms and makes me wonder, if those loans are actually "social". On the other hand, I also wonder how viable your business model is; by multiplying the total amount borrowed over the last few years with your margin, turnover seems very low. Ergo I hope you're thinking about how to scale up most efficiently. For instance, you could stop offering those small 3.00% projects separately and instead make a "fund" where you put in all those projects and people can invest continuously. From what I saw on your platform so far, this would make most sense for small environmental projects and small projects benefitting women.

The website is very clear and easy to use.
So far payments are on time, but i only started investing here 10 months ago

I think that you can be more transparent on how much rent the lender is going to pay for a particular project and how this compares to a conventional loan from the bank fro instance. So we lend out money for 6% , lendahand takes 3% and a local partner takes also 3%, then the lender will have to pay 12% rent. I think it would be fair to know as a investor what the lender is going to pay for each specific project.

Lost 12000 euro’s in a lendahand project. But still think combining investments with a social goal is the way to go. Let’s hope they Will do better in the future.

I would also recommend to show the money lost by investors on lendahand to show a more balanced view.

Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately our partner SimGas Kenya had to file for bankruptcy after 10 years of good work (installing biogasdigesters at households). It is also very unfortunate that you lost that amount. We always emphasize that it is highly recommended to spread loans across different investment opportunities. Nevertheless there is always a risk of loosing money. Please notice we do share actual data about late repayments and defaults on our website: https://www.lendahand.com/en-NL/portfolio BR Peter
