When a Borrower miss several payments more than 90 days and is no longer willing to continue their payment, the loan will labeled as a loan in default.

At KoinWorks you lend directly to real people and real businesses, not in abstract financial paper products. Our Borrowers apply for loans for constructive purposes, such as growing their business, getting their finances into a better shape, and education. All KoinWorks Borrowers must complete several screening and verification processes to get a loan. They will be also put through a credit analysis process that include Borrower’s credit reports, loan applications, and our proprietary algorithm to evaluate their credibility and ability to service the loan. Keep in mind that our loans have different grades, categorized based on their different levels of risk.
We cut the costs and inefficiencies prevalent in traditional banking and give more values to Borrowers and Lenders. Creditworthy Borrowers are connected to Lenders who look for better returns.
Once Borrowers applications get verified and evaluated, KoinWorks determines the credit scoring and interest rate. After that, the loan request is presented to Lenders for open bid.
Defaults is a part of a reality in lending activities as there are always risks that Borrowers cannot repay their loans. We advise that Lenders read the information here and in other sources so that they thoroughly understand the risks associated with lending their money.
Given these risks, KoinWorks manages risk in a number of ways:
Quality and Rating
We use Big Data to complement or replace conventional methods and run our proprietary algorithm. Only qualified borrowers are approved. For qualified Borrowers, we assign credit grades on loans that pass our credit assessment. Loans are graded from A to E based on their risk level with 5 subgrades each. Riskier loans are assigned higher interest rates to compensate the lenders for taking more risk.
As part of our commitment to protect Lenders, KoinWorks sets aside capital to set up the fund and will forego part of our revenues to continue adding to it. The fund is dedicated to limit the losses from our Lenders in the event of borrower default.
