P2P lending network
peer to peer (p2P) lending
Grow your business or investments with Peer to Peer (P2P) lending.
When Linked Finance launched in 2013 we aimed to solve a major problem facing small businesses in Ireland: access to funding. At the same time rock bottom interest rates frustrated savers with money to invest.
Using technology to cut out the middleman, Linked Finance brings business lending back to basics: where ordinary people with savings can connect and lend to trustworthy businesses that need working capital, business loans or stocking loans. This is called peer to peer (P2P) lending. Our online lending community is now provided much needed funding to thousands of ambitious Irish businesses.
At Linked Finance, we offer Irish SME’s a new alternative to bank loans for businesses. Real people can lend small amounts to great Irish businesses at very attractive interest rates.
Linked Finance is Ireland’s largest Peer to Peer (P2P) lending platform and our lenders are providing business loans of up to €300,000 to Irish SMEs in every county of the country and across every sector of the economy.
We allow our lenders to make a difference to Irish businesses and earn better interest rates while businesses are free to keep their focus where it should be: on growing their business.
Linked Finance launched in March 2013 and is Ireland’s first and largest business P2P Lending platform.
Peer-to-peer (P2P) lending is changing the face of banking across the world. In much the same way that technology has transformed the way we watch TV, listen to music, order taxis, book holidays and keep in touch with friends, P2P lending is re-shaping the way money moves between lenders and borrowers. P2P lending is about harnessing the power of the crowd. It uses technology to connect people with money to lend, directly to those who need capital.
Our community is made up of tens of thousands of local lenders who are ready to support homegrown SMEs. See the live total here on our stats page.
