  • Hi, very informative article.
    I am 28 years old and I am searching for good investment options. I just came to know about peer to peer lending as an emerging platform in India and wanted your views on that.

    • Hi Vikas,
      Good to know that you are interested in investment options. I would like to tell you that peer to peer lending is very risky so it really depends on your appetite of risk. I personally do not like it.
