Faircent.com is India’s largest peer to peer lending website which caters to retail and business loans. Faircent helps in eliminating the high margins, which intermediaries like banks and other financial institutions make on loan transactions. At Faircent.com people who have surplus money lend it directly to people who want to borrow. Thus, we provide a virtual market place where borrowers and lenders can directly interact and transact without third party intervention.
