Check out these real-world testimonials from people who recently discovered Prosper peer-to-peer lending:
Debt Consolidation Loan
“I just want to say that Prosper has definitely changed my financial future. I can now see the light at the end of the debt tunnel. I wasn’t sure at first with this unique way of lending if it was right for me, but after a year of set payments and no credit card debt, I can’t say thank you enough. Prosper is the only way to get out of debt for sure.”
“I prefer Prosper over conventional bank loans simply because it’s a peer-to-peer lending solution. Why should the banks reap all the benefits? People investing in their fellow citizens gives me hope for this country.”
Small Business Loan
“I used my loan through Prosper to redesign my website so it would be search engine friendly. The process was thorough and seamless. I think I am right where I should be right now!”
Here’s some stuff we’ve learned after issuing $1 billion in loans:
The most popular day for loans to get posted is Monday
Our best day of loan fundings was March 19, 2014 when over $5 million in loans were funded!
Our favorite loan purpose was a loan to help an author publish a limited-print children’s book about the experiences of a little tugboat named Tiny Tug, titled Tiny Tug Adventures on San Francisco Bay!
Despite Prosper & the peer-to-peer lending industry’s magnificent growth,
we still have barely scratched the surface of the personal loan market!
But if the last couple years are any indication,
the future of our company and our peer-to-peer community is prosperous.
