by Prosper on 04/17/12

Entrepreneurs like Lydia Hamilton-Monnie are turning to Prosper.com to start a business.

Lydia posted her listing after being turned down by three banks – and then received more than 750 bids from Prosper investors to help get her company, Boutique Larrieux, off the ground.
