Company Summary

Privlo is an online market where borrowers post loan requests and private lenders, competitively bid - with each other - to fund those loan requests. We have created an online storefront to the shadow banking industry. Our customers are non-standard, highly qualified borrowers, who do not qualify for traditional real estate loans including small business owners, uneven W-2s, and other typical exceptions to the banking credit window parameters.
