Borrower who is a natural personMaximum aggregate of MUR 1 million with a minimum of MUR 50,000
Borrower who is a legal personMaximum aggregate of MUR 3 million with a minimum of MUR 50,000
Lender who is a natural personMaximum aggregate of MUR 1.5 million

Furthermore, the reimbursement period for the lending through Peer to Peer Lending platforms must not exceed 84 months. For completeness, a Peer to Peer Lending platform is an online portal or electronic platform that facilitates the offering, execution or issuance of funds between prospective lenders and borrowers.
