LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - May 07, 2014) - IEG Holdings Corp. (PINKSHEETS: IEGH) announced that since launching online lending in July 2013, cumulative loan volume has increased by 425% from $237,000 to $1,007,000. The rapid loan volume growth is being driven by online lending website www.mramazingloans.com, new joint venture arrangements with leading online personal loan lead sources and aggressive state license expansion. IEGH has lent $96,000 to customers in only the first 4 business days of May.
"It is fantastic to see the business firing on all cylinders with monthly loan growth rates exceeding what we achieved previously in Australia at a similar stage. We are entering a very exciting growth phase in a market 100 times the size of Australia's consumer finance market where we previously grew cumulative loan volumes from $1 million to $48 million in only 2.5 years," stated Paul Mathieson, Chairman/CEO and Founder of IEG Holdings Corporation. "While we are pleased with our recent growth performance, it is only the tip of the iceberg considering our planned expansion to 33 states over the next 6 months and our short term growth goal of lending over $1 million per month."
