Crowdlending allows projects to finance themselves through a large and diverse group of people without having to go to a bank. In the crowdlending model people lend small amounts of money to a project in exchange for a financial return stipulated in a loan agreement.
Ecrowd! is a crowdlending platform that connects projects and investors in a quick and easy way, providing affordable financing to projects and profitability to investors.
On Ecrowd! you can ask for a collective loan between €25,000 and €300,000. Once a project is submitted, Ecrowd! thoroughly analyses it from an economical, technical and legal perspective – the platform only selects projects that are profitable and generate positive impact in society or the environment. If accepted, the project is open to investors.
Ecrowd! takes a management fee, which is the difference between the interest rate the project pays and the interest rate the investor receives.
