CRED launches new peer-to-peer lending product CRED Mint; offers up to 9% returns

Bengaluru-based fintech platform CRED on Friday launched a peer-to-peer (P2P) lending product called CRED Mint for its users.

CRED Mint is the company’s first community-driven product that enables members to earn interest on idle money by lending to other members. The fintech firm has partnered with Liquiloans, an RBI-registered P2P NBFC for the new product.

CRED said that those members who participate in CRED Mint can earn inflation-beating interest rates of up to 9 per cent per annum, higher than traditional methods.

“At up to 9 per cent interest, CRED Mint enables India’s most creditworthy individuals to be rewarded for responsible financial behaviour with a smarter way to make idle money work for them,” a company statement said adding that its users can apply for early access to CRED Mint.
