Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find the most common questions we receive about loan-based crowdfunding

How does Loan-based Crowdfunding work on FundedByMe?

Loan-based Crowdfunding is the method where several individual lenders together contribute to the overall business loan of a company, helping it grow its business while offering you a good return on your loan.

What amounts can I lend to companies?

You can lend at least €50 and up to €20,000 to companies seeking loans on the platform.

What criteria do companies have to meet in order to seek loans on the FundedByMe platform?

Every company needs to have a turnover of at least €15,000 in early turnover, and have been registered for at least 1,5 years. In addition to this, the information from credit bureaus UC and Bisnode both have to give the company a favourable risk rating.

How is FundedByMe better than banks?

By lending to companies through the FundedByMe platform, you can receive a higher interest rate than those offered by savings accounts in banks, and at the same time you get to choose how the money is used by Swedish companies that you wish to support.

How does the security for loans work?

For companies seeking a loan above €40,000, we require a personal guarantee. This means that the majority shareholders, board members have to individually or jointly guarantee the full amount of the loan.

What should I consider before lending money to a company?

There are several factors that you should take into account before lending money to a company. Consider your risk tolerance and your expectations about what income you want, as well as consider what company you wish to support.
