Electronic markets (e-markets) have metamorphosed the process of ticket reservation, online shopping, online trading and many other industries by replacing traditional distribution channels and reshaping customer-supplier relationships. Processes can now be automated to eliminate the middle man and minimize unnecessary overhead. The most recent application of e-markets is to social lending. Social lending or peer-to-peer lending has gained popularity to counter the rigid lending practices and curb the excesses of conventional banking. Lenders pool their resources together online and make them available as loans at a premium to borrowers who need it. Evaluation of viability of the social lending business model has not been adequately addressed in literature from a supply chain perspective. By viewing the problem as a supply chain problem will help to identify the efficiencies in the business model, analyze the process and identify business process improvement opportunities. This paper maps the supply chain of the social lending space and implements it using a hybrid of system dynamics and agentbased modeling and simulation.
