Summer is the time to kick back and relax, not worry about how much you’re going to have to spend just to have fun.

Prosper Loan that puts you in a better financial position (i.e debt consolidation/school expenses) = good idea

Prosper Loan that puts you in a worse financial position (loan for vacation, big extravagant wedding/engagement ring) = loans that go in to default that not even the JDB’s want to buy.
