Lenders FAQ

No, IndiaMoneyMart is not a financial institution. It is just an online marketplace that brings together Borrowers and Lenders to enable a transaction between them at their own terms.

Individual Borrowers get loans from individual Lenders in this marketplace on the internet.

Lenders interested in providing a loan and Borrowers interested in procuring one, completes a simple application on IndiaMoneyMart for registration. We then undertake a detailed verification process following KYC (Know Your Customer) norms. Only those applicants who satisfy our verification process are registered as Lenders and Borrowers on our platform.

Approved Lenders receive lending offers in just a few minutes, after which they can evaluate the loan options by themselves and give loan proposals to the registered Borrowers on our website. Once the proposal, including the amount and tenure of the loan and the rate of interest are finalised, the contract is signed between the Lender and the Borrower.

The loan transaction is considered locked when the Borrowers receive the money from the Lenders in their accounts. All necessary contractual documentations for the loan between the Lenders and the Borrowers are handled by IndiaMoneyMart.

As our entire process is conducted online, using cutting edge information technology, this lowers both ours and our Lender’s establishment costs. We pass these savings back to our registered users who then can borrow money at a lower rate of interest, and still provide substantial returns to our Lenders.

Though the dealing is always directly done between the Lender and the Borrower, IMM takes all necessary safety measures to increase safety of the Lenders. In the rare case of defaults/delays, IMM would closely work with the Lenders for recovering of their funds. Costs, if any, towards recovery of funds will be billed to the account of Lenders and efforts will also be made to recover the same from the Borrowers.

You can lend between Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 3,00,000 for a period ranging from 3 to 48 months.

IndiaMoneyMart’s business transactions and its business model work on a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) concept. This means that the interest rates and the tenure of the loans on this lending platform are determined mutually by the Lenders and the Borrowers and not by IMM. Unlike banks, IndiaMoneyMart only charges processing and transaction fees for its support to the registered members and doesn’t make any money on the proposed interest rates to the Borrowers. Moreover, due to the online nature of this platform, infrastructure costs and overheads are minimized, which lowers both our's and our Lender's operational costs, which get passed on to the Borrowers.

In the event of closure of IndiaMoneyMart, all loans that have originated through us still holds good, until full and final payments are made by the Borrowers. This is because, all loan agreements entered through IndiaMoneyMart are signed directly between the Lenders and the Borrowers and have legal standing irrespective of IndiaMoneyMart’s functioning.

IndiaMoneyMart charges a minimal fee for all services rendered to Lenders on this platform. Upon loan closure, Lenders pay us Rs 1, 000 as Processing Fee and 1% of their loaned amount as Transaction Fee.
