In October Smava Poland (Smava.pl) entered a cooperation with Euro Finanse, an independent vendor of financial products and services. Smava says the cooperation already yields very positive results. The first three weeks of cooperation brought a 50% growth in loan volume.
Euro Finanse was selected as partner due to it’s sales strength and presence not only in the large cities but with 450 financial consultants throughout the country, says CEO Przemysław Moscicki.
Apart from sales activities the consultants can handle additional tasks like verifying identities of borrowers in person and validating income statements.
To my knowledge Smava.pl is the first p2p lending company to use an offline sales channel to sell the service.
