LendLedger brings together Borrowers, Lenders, and Data Providers in an open and decentralized network built on blockchain technology. Our mission is to solve the $8 trillion funding gap that over 200 million small businesses face globally as they struggle to demonstrate traditional credit histories. As the only blockchain-powered network that enables borrowers and financial institutions to transact in their local currency, we’re building a lending market that is inclusive, trustworthy, and profitable for all participants. Our software is already powering loans at a rate of $30 million per year in 400 cities across India and through blockchain we're scaling globally.
LendLedger is the first blockchain-based open protocol connecting data providers, lenders and borrowers to help small businesses globally unlock the eight trillion dollars in loans they are unable to access today. LendLedger’s founders and advisors have created or led pioneering ventures in emerging markets, including SKS (First microfinance institution to IPO in India), FINO Paytech (70 million clients), and M-PESA in Kenya (largest mobile money provider globally). V.01 of the LendLedger protocol is already in use, powering $30 million in loan disbursements annually for Happy Loans, a licensed lender in India. Lenders leveraging the LendLedger protocol also do not need to hold crypto-assets, thereby significantly reducing barriers to adoption. Our LOANtokens, are used to unlock lending credits on the network and give access for data providers, borrowers and others.
Post Raise - By the end of 2018 Q4
By the end of 2018 LendLedger hopes to onboard its entire Indian lending business (https://happyness.net/) onto the LendLedger platform. The business is currently giving out loans at a run rate of $30 million annually.
LendLedger will began expanding to other emerging markets such as Kenya. At this stage our community experts and advisors will be invaluable in assisting us in making inroads into these new markets.
