Investing in peer-to-peer (P2P) lending is a great way to boost yields and diversify your investment opportunities. P2P lending is an alternative asset that offers attractive, absolute and risk-adjusted returns, even in today's low-interest-rate environment. However, similar to all types of investments, this too carries certain risks, mostly are related to delayed repayments of loans but we have secured this by enabling investors to sell their loans; e.g. in case your respective investment in terms of loans to Karyana Stores is not paid in time, you will have an option to sell this loan however in such a situation, the earnings from Late Payment Charges will not be part of your investment returns.
