What is a private lender? Any lender that is NOT: a bank, treasury branch, credit union, loan corporation, trust corporation, insurance company nor any person engaged in the business of making loans. A private lender is a private individual who chooses to invests his or her accumulated wealth by loaning it to other persons on an occasional basis, either personally or through a privately held corporation.
In a phrase, private lenders are: "People Investing in People"TM
