Who you’ll be lending to

Through FOLK2FOLK you’ll be helping to support entrepreneurial businesses from farmers, property renovators, developers, country hotels and pubs, right through to manufacturing businesses, yoga studios and cafés. You’ll be providing the finance to start or grow businesses, buy assets or boost working capital.

We’re choosy but fair and turn down Borrowers who don’t meet our criteria. Our credit assessment process includes undertaking credit reference checks, due diligence, checking asset ownership and often holding a personal meeting prior to loan approval.

It’s important, however, that you do your own due diligence and don’t rely solely on FOLK2FOLK’s review when deciding to invest into a loan on the FOLK2FOLK platform.

What you should know before investing

Before you invest in a loan here are a few things we think you should know from the start. Why not also read our Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Don’t invest unless you’re prepared to lose money. This is a high-risk investment. You may not be able to access your money easily and are unlikely to be protected if something goes wrong. Take 2 mins to learn more.
  • To be a FOLK2FOLK Investor you must be a UK tax resident only.  Learn more about tax and return.
  • A peer-to-peer loan investment is illiquid. If you need to exit your loan investment early you can offer it for sale to other FOLK2FOLK Investors via our secondary market, but there is no guarantee of a sale.
  • Your loan investment may be redeemed earlier than expected by the Borrower.
  • There are no fees to enter into a loan, but fees apply if you wish to exit your investment early.
