Bondora has marked a record month for missed payment recoveries.
The European peer-to-peer lender revealed that it recovered more than €2.3m (£1.7m) of missed payments in September, an all-time high.
The figure is a 130 per cent jump from August and the first-time recoveries have passed the €2m mark.
This increase was led mainly by a 138.2 per cent growth in bailiff recoveries compared with the month before, accounting for 88.2 per cent of all cash recovered in the month.
