Welcome to PrivateLender.org: Setting the Global Standard for Safety in Private Lender Interactions

Transcripts from a Loan Interview:

Applicant: Oh...you’re a private lender...?

Applicant: Well….before I answer your multiple questions about my financial details, my SIN/SSN number, my income, employment and family information,  let me ask you one question:

“Prove It!”

(prove you really are a private lender)
(prove you really have the means to help me) 
(prove you are not trying to take advantage of me) 
(prove you will keep my information safe and secure from theft, even if I do not accept your terms) 
(prove you will work with me if things go bad) 
(prove you are not taking my information and re-selling to other people) 

Loan Salesperson: Leaves room without looking back.

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

Accreditation or Compliance does not mean that the private lender's products or services have been endorsed by PrivateLender.org nor does it mean that PrivateLender.org endorses the products. Investors who seek to lend money privately are not obligated to seek accreditation, nor may they choose to seek accreditation.

Only Accredited Class® Private Lenders (APL) are proven to provide fully compliant, non-bank debt solutions with a focus on quality resulting in the highest levels of borrower satisfaction. Look for the APL designation whenever you are seeking non-institutional credit. Demand it.
