Find Peer To Peer P2P Lending For Business Savers And Borrowers
I came across this company called Lending Crowd, who you can not only borrow from by taking out a loan, but you can also invest in and use any money you have to fund loans and get a return on your money.
Lending Crowd – the legal bit
Thy clear state the following on their website, which is worth repeating here:

Lending Crowd Borrowing
The loans and borrowing is geared towards businesses rather than individuals and you can borrow from £5,000 to £250,000 with terms from 6 months to 5 years.
When you click on their banner below and apply for a new loan, their experienced Credit Assessment Team treats each business individually, on a case by case basis.
Investors then bid on your loan with only the most competitive bids funding your business with interest rates starting from 5.95%.
LendingCrowd state that once your business is approved for a loan, you could have the funds in as little as 30 days, with low transparent fees from as little as 2%.
Lending Crowd Lending
On the reverse side then, instead of borrowing from them, you can invest in the loans they issue, in order to get a return on your investment.
They state that you could earn up to 12.25%* with LendingCrowd Credit Bands when you invest in a business that’s right for you.
Lending Crowd say that it is a simple investment process, as you just sign up, place a bid or invest in the loan exchange and start earning interest.
You must always remember that, as an investor, your capital is at risk.
