Peer-to-peer lending, abbreviated as P2P Lending, is a practice of lending money to individuals or businesses through an electronic system that bridges lenders with borrowers. P2P Lending combines internet technology and financial services aimed at improving and automating the delivery of financial services. P2P Lending literally changes the business model from conventional to modern. Provider of P2P Lending services (“Provider”) can be in the form of a limited liability company or a cooperative. P2P Lending is under the supervision of the Financial Services Authority (“OJK”). Meanwhile, Fintech, which is engaged in payment system activities (e.g. e-money, e-wallet, mobile payments), is under the supervision of Bank Indonesia.
