Bank on Family

Lending money to a friend? There's a 43% chance you won't see that money again...

Everyone goes into peer-to-peer lending transactions with a positive state of mind, but the reality is not all informal loans get paid back. This is not only unhelpful to the borrower but puts a strain on the relationship. Bank on Family will increase repayment rates for lenders, build borrowers credit, and create loyal members with healthy financial behaviors.
