Inflation is the increase in the price of
The current inflation rate in Jamaica is 4.87% and is expected to keep rising over the next few years.

Investing in the P2P market will give you the opportunity to multiply your money so it can keep up and even beat inflation.
While it is true that banks can give you an average of less than 0% - 1% annual interest if you keep your money with them; that’s even lower than the inflation rate!
The P2P market can easily make your money grow by at least 8% or more with strategic investing techniques.
When you invest in P2P Loans, you can take advantage of the magic of compounding interest.
This is the result of reinvesting your money rather than paying it out.
Over time, this interest on interest generates more money; without any huge effort on your part.
Another way where you can earn passive income is through Payouts.
Payouts are issued every quarter and mirrors the interest earned on your units of loans that you have invested in.
You wouldn’t need to do anything special: as long as you choose to get payout every quarter, expect to receive the interest earned on your money as a means of passive income you can constantly look forward to.
Investing in P2P involves discipline and continued saving.
