Is it possible, yes, is it probable no. This would not be investing it would be gambling, and you would be better betting red and letting it ride 8 times at the roulette table (easier to calculate your odds, and you dont have to wait 18 months).
Private lending is usually better suited for people with lots of money (50k and up), wanting above average returns, low risk, and easy passive management. “Get rich slow”, as I like to say. IRA funds are ideal, but the fees would be high with such a small bankroll.
