LiquiLoans provides a platform to bring together people who are willing to borrow and lend, with a view that people come forward to support one another. While LiquiLoans neither lends nor borrows, it facilitates a transaction of borrowing and lending between such persons. 3. The Participant is engaged in carrying on bonafide activities for livelihood and intends to utilize the platform provided by LiquiLoans to lend certain sums of monies to various persons, from time to time, on the terms and conditions as may be acceptable to the Participant and the Parties have accordingly agreed to record their understanding and execute these presents.

NOW, THEREFORE, THE PARTIES HEREBY AGREE AS UNDER:

  1. Purpose and Methodology:

(a) The Participant intends to utilise his surplus funds to lend to persons in need, so as to earn interest thereon and will therefore utilise the platform provided by LiquiLoans, which facilitates interactions between the persons interested in lending and those interested in borrowing, so that the lenders can, basis the information furnished by the borrowers, decide on the persons to whom they can lend and the terms and conditions of such lending.

(b) The LiquiLoans shall provide the Participant with access to database of persons who intend to borrow certain sums of monies through the LiquiLoans platform. LiquiLoans will in no manner collect deposits from the Participant or any person who would like to earn interest on their money by lending. The LiquiLoans will only provide support to the Participant in verifying the details of the borrower, on best effort basis, basis the details furnished by the borrower(s).

(c) LiquiLoans may undertake credit assessment of the borrower(s) to understand the risk of default. For this purpose, financial, social and personal background check may be undertaken, basis certain documents submitted by the borrowers, such as income and bank statements. Various factors that may be considered for credit evaluation mechanism are:

(i) Stability: is understood basis the nature of borrower’s residence i.e. rented/self-owned, length of stay at the same address, length of employment in the same organization, etc. (ii) Ability: is evaluated by studying the borrower’s income & expenditure behaviour. For example, a healthy percentage of income saved reflects better ability of borrower to repay his/her financial liabilities. (iii) Intention: is understood by analyzing the past repayment behaviour of the borrower towards his financial liabilities. Delayed repayments in past financial transactions

reduce the chances of loan approval. For this purpose, bureau reports are procured (with prior consent from the borrowers) and evaluated. (iv) Bank statement: helps to judge banking habits of a borrower. Several parameters like average monthly balance, cheque bounce and unaccounted transactions, if any, are taken into consideration for assessment of a borrower’s credit worth. (v) Verification: Telephonic verification may be undertaken to get first-hand information from the borrowers, physical verification at both the residence & office address may also be undertaken. All documents submitted by the borrowers may also be verified for forgery.

(d) The Participant shall chose the persons to whom he intends to lend the monies decided by him, on the commercial terms and conditions as applicable to each such person(s), which shall be made available by the LiquiLoans to the Participant.

(e) To ensure secure, fast and smooth transfer of funds with every transaction on the platform, LiquiLoans has opened a “Lenders’ Escrow Account” under the trusteeship of IDBI trustee services ltd. Participant will need to transfer the amount he wishes to lend through LiquiLoans, into such Lenders’ Escrow Account.

(f) Once the loan transaction of the Participant with the particular borrower(s) is complete, LiquiLoans will transfer the relevant amount from the Lenders’ Escrow Account directly to the borrower’s bank account. The salient features of such Escrow Account are:

(i) LiquiLoans does not have any right to intervene or option to withdraw monies from such

account for its own use. (ii) The Participant shall give instructions, through LiquiLoans, to the trustee, who in turn will

forward such instructions to the escrow bank for execution. (iii) LiquiLoans cannot do any transactions, only view the transactions done through the

Lenders’ Escrow Account. (iv) The trustee will independently audit the operations of the Lenders’ Escrow Account on a

regular basis.

(g) To ensure secure, fast and smooth transfer of funds with every transaction on the platform, LiquiLoans has opened a “Borrowers’ Escrow Account” under the trusteeship of IDBI trustee services ltd. The Borrowers will need to transfer the amounts due and payable by them to the lenders, into such Borrowers’ Escrow Account. After the loan is disbursed, the borrower will pay the EMIs on or before the stipulated date of every month. If a borrower fails to pay an EMI within a stipulated time, a penalty is levied on the borrower which is payable to the Participant. The first EMI is payable by cheque. Thereafter, repayments– EMI and pre-closure – are made through an online, automated procedure. Every month the entire EMI amount is collected directly (through auto-debit) from the borrower’s account to the Borrowers’ Escrow account, from where it gets reflected in respective lenders virtual account.

(h) The Participant can anytime withdraw monies due to him and lying to the credit of the Borrowers’ Escrow Account, by simply writing to LiquiLoans and the monies will be transferred to his bank account within 3 working days.

(i) Once the Participant has pre-funded the Lender’s Escrow account with the amount he wishes to lend, he can start lending by sending proposals to borrowers. Loan listings are made available to the Participant along with relevant financial, credit and personal details of each borrower. The Participant can use this information to make an informed choice and send a proposal to fund the borrower. Offers are accepted on first come first served basis. The Participant can fund up to INR 50,000 of a borrower’s total loan requirement.

(j) Loan Disbursal: Loan disbursal to the Borrowers shall begin only after the loan agreement has been signed by them and the borrower has provided the required number of post-dated cheques towards their payment obligations and repayment of the first EMI.

(k) Loan Agreement: LiquiLoans facilitates the signing of legally-binding agreement between the borrower and the lenders. To facilitate smooth signing of such agreement, the Participant shall grant a power of attorney to the LiquiLoans to execute such agreement and other documents on behalf of the Participant. The LiquiLoans will execute such agreement and other documents on behalf of the Participant, with the Borrower and then sent through email, if requested, for their records.

(l) Collection Activity: P2P lending is a market-linked asset class, open to the risk of default. We urge all lenders to go through default rates and understand the risks involved before investing. At LiquiLoans, we try to keep default-rate to a minimum by taking numerous steps to mitigate risk. Every borrower registered with us is identity-checked, credit-checked and risk-assessed by our experienced team to ensure that only highly-curated are listed on the platform. The loan is disbursed only after the borrower signs the legally-bound loan agreement. Auto reminders (sms and call) are sent to all borrowers 3-5 days before the EMI due date. However, though we do our best to manage the risk at every step, defaults can happen. In case of default, LiquiLoans has a 4-step soft recovery process to collect pending payments on behalf of lenders.-

  • In-house collection team establishes communication with defaulting borrower and follows-up for pending payments (call/sms);
  • Legally-compliant collection agencies follow-up;
  • Legal-notice is sent on behalf of the lenders. Expenses incurred for sending legal notices and by recovery agency are borne by the lender;
  • Legally-compliant recovery agencies try to recover pending amount on behalf of lenders.

(m) Collection and Recovery Process is on best-effort basis which may not result in recovery and hence the risk of loss of both principal and interest exists. LiquiLoans is only an intermediary providing an online platform to connect borrowers and lenders and as such is not liable in any manner for any default of the borrowers. We urge you to read all terms and conditions thoroughly and understand all the risks involved before lending.
