Our secret of success lies in our ability to perform a rapid and reliable test, based on social data sources, like Facebook, along with just a few documents. The weighting and consideration of the different criteria provided by these sources allow us to create an accurate picture of each borrower and his/her repayment ability. And it’s all done in a safe, secure and discreet manner, giving lenders peace of mind and borrowers a quick response.
After all, both sides must feel comfortable with the transaction—that’s the essence of lending between people.
BLender is run by its exclusive DirectMatchTM system, which utilizes exclusive sophisticated mathematical algorithms to find the optimal match between borrowers’ requests and lenders’ terms. The system distributes lenders’ money among many borrowers, so that each loans is, in fact, made up of money from many different lenders, thus lessening the risk.
