PeerBerry, the leading peer-to-peer lending platform, achieved significant milestones in August, surpassing previous records. Investors funded a remarkable amount of €75.36 million in loans, marking the highest monthly funding in the platform’s six-year history. This achievement has pushed the total funded loans on PeerBerry to over €2 billion.
Investors were also rewarded with €867,844 in interest last month, as PeerBerry’s portfolio reached €116.63 million by the end of August. Moreover, 1,164 new investors joined the platform, bringing the total number of verified investors to over 73,550.
In August, PeerBerry’s business partners took a crucial step towards repayment of war-affected loans, repaying over €1.8 million. Since the start of the Group guarantee mechanism during the 18 months of the war, these partners have already repaid €44.58 million, which accounts for 89% of the total war-affected obligations.
The final repayment of Aventus Group war-affected short-term obligations is set to be processed on September 5. Additionally, Aventus Group will continue to repay war-affected long-term loans every month according to the initial loan schedules, while Gofingo Group will cover its obligations in the middle of each month.
