Here are two examples of how your investment is covered:
Example 1: Julia makes a first-time investment of EUR 1,000 in Project A. This means that Project A is guaranteed for EUR 500.
- Scenario 1.1: Project A defaults after EUR 200 has been paid back (excluding interest). Julia gets EUR 300 back from the Guarantee Program.
- Scenario 1.2: Project A defaults after EUR 500 has been paid back (excluding interest). Julia gets EUR 0 back from the Guarantee Program.
Example 2: Julia makes a first-time investment of EUR 1,000 in 2 projects, Project A and Project B. She invests EUR 600 in Project A and EUR 400 in Project B. This means that Project A is guaranteed for EUR 300 and project B for EUR 200.
- Scenario 2.1: Project A defaults after EUR 100 has been paid back (excluding interest). Julia gets EUR 200 back from the Guarantee Program.
- Scenario 2.2: Project A defaults after EUR 300 has been paid back (excluding interest). Julia gets EUR 0 back from the Guarantee Program.
This offer is only valid for first-time investors. The guarantee can be claimed after (1) Lendahand notifies the investor that the investment has been written off, OR (2) A payment is overdue by more than 365 days, and no subsequent payments have been received since that delay.
