International Activities

BLender constantly expands into new territories. The main competitive advantage of BLender is its ability to assess credit risk in territories that lack the presence of a credit bureau or centralized financial information on individuals.

ECOSYSTEM

P2P lending is one of the fastest growing fields in today’s financial world. With a CAGR of approximately 130% in the latest 5 years, P2P is considered to be “The Next Big Thing”. BLender is creating a blue ocean strategy by altering the boundaries of the existing P2P Lending market.
