FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

June 18th, 2010 –CommunityLend Inc., Canada’s only online peer-to-peer lending company, has entered into a partnership agreement with Strength Finance, an industry leader in vendor-based financing solutions, to provide a new financing alternative to the rapidly expanding vendor based finance industry in Canada.

”We are excited by the opportunity to work with a real market leader in financing solutions for point-of-purchase vendor sales,” noted Michael Garrity, CEO of CommunityLend. “Strength Finance and its group of companies have spent the last 5 years building out a strong vendor network into the Home Improvement and Elective Medical and Dental finance industries and we look forward to bringing the power of our lending community into that network.”

CommunityLend, which is pioneering a unique online lending marketplace in Canada, has been expanding its methods for getting its better priced financing options into the hands of good quality Canadian borrowers looking for small unsecured loans. Through this partnership with Strength Finance, CommunityLend will now be able to introduce their private lender marketplace directly into Canada’s multi-billion dollar vendor-based finance industry.

James Plewak, CEO of Strength Finance added, “By adding Communitylend as a new lender into the rapidly growing Strength Finance platform, we are continuing to increase the options available to our vendor community and their customers. We now have a viable option to expand our platform to all types of vendor communities in exactly the same way as we have built our business to date, by providing reasonably priced finance options that will not put our vendor’s clients into financial hardship. It is exciting to work with the CommunityLend team in supporting the launch of the first Peer-to-Peer lending system in Canada.”

  5. Hey I just wanted to let you know, I really like the writing on your site. But I am employing Chromium on a machine running version 9.04 of Crashbang Ubuntu and the look and feel is not quite as intended. Not a serious deal, I can still essentially read the posts and research for information, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of hard to use with the config I am on. Keep up the good work!

  6. Thanks for that Ali. We know there are sometimes browser issues. I use Chrome/ Win7 and it looks ok. We need to do more testing with Linux. Thanks for the note.
