    The video stops short 5 minuted into the workshop, and does not continue. I’d love to hear the rest!

    Prosper has been a financial lifesaver for me. I’m looking forward to more investment webinars.

    It would be interesting to see how default rates vary by state. Do states in poor financial condition (California comes to mind) have higher personal default rates than people in more economically conservative states?

    Also, it was difficult to read the slides with the smaller fonts.

    I don’t have perfect credit but I would like to see if you are a direct lender. If so,, I would like to complete an application to see if I can qualify

    I’m new to p2p investing and was wondering what happens to money invested in a loan that the time runs out. Does it get credited back to your account.

  • http://blog.prosper.com Prosper Blog

    @Matt Welcome to peer-to-peer lending! Yes, if a loan that you have invested in is not fully funded, your investment will be credited back to your account and you will get notified via email.
    Let us know if you have any other questions.
