In April of this year, we announced that we crossed over $1 billion in loans issued through our online marketplace lending platform.
This October, we shattered all expectations and reached our second billion dollars in loans in just 6 months.
Wow, that was fast. And it was all thanks to you, The Prosper Community!
Even though it’s only been half a year since our last big announcement, Prosper has been rapidly growing and expanding – from new team members, to new eligible states, to better terms and new features on the website. This year more than ever, we’ve put our ears to the ground and really listened to what the community was saying in customer service calls, Twitter posts, and Facebook comments, and made what was most important to them, most important to us.
There’s been more going on in the Prosper world than we could ever fit in one blog post, so we created an interactive infographic so you can learn more about our road to $2 billion.

The Prosper $2 Billion Photo and Video Contests
In celebration of our first $2 billion dollars, and to show our appreciation for our thriving lending community, we are launching a photo and video contest for our community of borrowers! We want to learn about your Prosper experience and how it made your life easier, made your family happier, or got your finances under control. You can either submit a video or a photo through the links below to tell your story – they can be serious, funny, reflective, creative, or all of the above – and no prior filmmaking/photography experience required! We just want your submission to be honest and unique. We’ll be taking entries until November 13th.
After we’ve reviewed all of the entries, we’ll choose our favorite 5 photos and favorite 5 videos and let YOU, the community, vote for your favorites. We’ll have prizes for 1st-3rd place in both the photo and video categories, with the grand prize for the video contest being a full loan payoff! The prizes are as follows:
All prize amounts will be credited towards your Prosper account. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
