The Founder, Richard van der Velde, has many years of experience working in the furniture & appliance rental industry. Over the years, he has watched unscrupulous companies take advantage of people, simply because those people did not fit into certain 'lending criteria'. This forced decent people to source funds from some very unsavoury people and/or companies.

Upon moving out of that area of work, he and his wife, Tonya, created PayMyParents,. This was for parents to lend money to their children under safe, nurturing conditions. When PayMyParents was in motion, they soon found that so many people needing money had little or no family support.

Thus, it was a logical step to provide a platform that allows legitimate Borrowers to find private people who are prepared to help them out with a loan.

Many Borrowers do not fit the often dated and overly complicated banking and lending requirements, yet they are honest, legitimate Borrowers. Using our platform, Borrowers get to put their application in front of private lenders who are not constricted by company rules.

Lenders using our platform have total control of who they lend to, how much they lend and can adjust the returns they are looking for within sensible limits. Lenders receive a better return on their investment than is available with traditional investment platforms and have total control over their investments and receive 100% of monies repaid.

Our educational facilities simply fail to teach our young people monetary skills. In particular how to use whatever income they might receive to create their own level of wealth and hopefully never have to rely on government support.

Simply using EasyPayd to borrow money mirrors commercial lending systems without the onerous rules and regulations. In addition, we offer a growing library of videos, expert advice and more all based on financial habits and education that help people grow their wealth.

And it’s 100% FREE to anyone who joins the platform!
