A small guide introducing the reader to Collaborative Finance. Collaborative Finance is an umbrella term that assembles together various peer to peer processes of money exchange, that avoid the intermediation of a traditional financial institution. The guide covers some of those processes of informal financial transactions, that have been enabled by advances in social media and peer-to-peer online platforms.
