The lending campaign at FundedByMe is considered to be successful when it reaches at lest 80% of the initial funding goal. Entrepreneurs are allowed to get loans in the amount of at least 80% of their initial funding goal because sometimes it is possible to reach the commercial goals with a smaller amount of money than set initially.

If the loan is funded in less than 80%, the risk is too high that the money will be used for other purposes than declared. It may also mean that the business idea is not convincing or interesting enough for lenders registered on FundedByMe.
