What is Crowdestor?

Crowdestor runs a direct marketplace lending platform, which means it operates the "traditional" or "pure" P2P lending model and serves as an online space where borrowers can apply for loans and investors can fund projects. Crowdestor is managed by Crowdestor OÜ, based in Estonia. It's not regulated by any supervisory authority.

Crowdestor makes it possible to provide funding to business owners, real estate developers, and individuals by investing in business loans, real estate loans, personal loans, and startup stocks. You can also apply for funding if you are a business owner, a real estate developer, or an individual seeking financing.

What does Crowdestor offer?

At Crowdestor, you can make EUR-denominated investments starting from €10. You can also buy and sell loans on a secondary market.

Crowdestor separates investors’ funds from the platform company assets but doesn’t have a wind-down plan in place to ensure minimal damage in case the platform goes out of business. It discloses statistics about its funded loans on a dedicated public page and shares its monthly funding volumes with P2PMarketData.
