What is peer to peer lending?
Peer-to-peer lending, also known as marketplace lending, is an innovative concept which involves of the direct matching of lenders and borrowers via a peer-to-peer lending platform like PesaPata. This enables lenders to enjoy far better returns and borrowers to enjoy low cost loans without the sneaky fees charged by traditional financial institutions.
Peer-to-peer lending continues to grow exponentially and is at the heart of the alternative finance movement.
Is this a pyramid scheme?
A pyramid scheme is defined as an unsustainable business model that involves promising participants’ payment, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public. Pesa Pata only allows you to earn when you lend money to clients and it is therefore not a pyramid scheme but a sustainable and vetted business model

Upon expressing interest, Pesa Pata may get you an angel investor to put up the entry fee for you. This means splitting the commission with the angel investor.

I have the entry fee. I do not want to lend the money myself.
In Kenya, half of the working population is unemployed. You may decide to create an impact by providing job creation for someone who is unemployed. You can put up the entry fee amount and get them to operate the account. You will then split the commissions with the person whom you have employed. For example, if you put up a entry fee amount of Kshs 5,000-the commissions you should get per month are Kshs 1,600. You may decide to give Kshs 800 to the person operating the account. The Pesa Pata platform has automated this process and has the capability to give you the full view of your accounts and respective clients.
Is entry fee refundable?
The entry fee is a one-time fee that is non-refundable. If you get into a supermarket and buy soap, you exchange the soap with money. When you get home, you do not go back to the supermarket to claim your money back by returning the soap. Our business operates with the same principle. Our credit facility ensures that you recover the entry fee within the first 13 weeks through the commissions. For the remaining life of the account, you are then operating with profits. For example, if you put up a entry fee amount of Kshs 5,000, earning Kshs 400 per week, it means that you will recover the amount in 13 weeks.
The other benefit is that the entry fee allows you to operate for upto 5 years without requiring the need for a top up. Additionally, if you no longer wish to run the Pesa Pata platform, the accounts may be transferred to another individual
