Why P2P-lending sector is growing in the world?

Investors prefer P2P-lending to banks.
It is possible to be engaged in lending without costs for KYC and restrictions for requirements to the capital with BASEL and under less regulatory pressure
Borrowers prefer P2P-lending to banks.
The percentage of loan applications refused by banks is growing. In turn every request for individual's credit history spoils his credit rating. The borrower can't know current lending politics of a particular bank. P2P-portals often offer lower loan interest rate and approve loan applications with higher probability.
Unprofessional lenders:
They got a new financial instrument to invest in lending which doesn't require specialization in it and promise higher profit than a bank deposit. Besides no license is required
Professional lenders (financial organizations):
First of all decreasing of loan approval causes raising of CPL price and high costs of underwriting. The next there are BASEL strict requirements and KYC-costs remaining at a high level. Finally, offices are necessary. These things definitely proven the need for an alternative to conventional bank lending
P2P-lending portals use payment infrastructure of banks, risk infrastructure of credit bureaus, and capabilities of the Internet in order to communicate with customers at the lowest cost
