Prosper Gives Back: Thanks from the Prosper Team*

by Prosper on 03/26/14

Whew! What an incredible journey it has been.  This past year has been monumental for Prosper as more and more people experience how easy it is to borrow and invest with people just like you.  We’ve evolved from a small disruptive force in the lending industry into a major voice in the finance market.  We’ve developed a vibrant lending community where people invest in a full spectrum of projects and people that they truly believe in, and we’ve transformed our social media presence into a hub for all things regarding personal finance and peer-to-peer.  We have grown over 600% in the last year as people have turned to peer-to-peer loans for everything from cutting credit card debt to helping with small businesses, vacations and home improvement projects.  To date, over 93,000 people have taken a loan through Prosper, and more than 75,000 individual investors have invested money through the platform.

Everything has led up to this moment.  Next week, Prosper will cross the $1,000,000,000 mark in personal loans originated through Prosper.

And it was all made possible by you.

To give back to our ever-growing peer-to-peer lending community, we’re going to give away $1,000 to both a lucky borrower and lucky investor, every day for two weeks, starting tomorrow.

Here’s what you should know:

  • First, if you haven’t already, like us on Facebook  and follow us on Twitter.
  • Each day for the next two weeks, we’ll randomly select one active Prosper borrower and one active Prosper investor.
  • The selections will be announced via Facebook and Twitter (which is why you have to like/follow us).
  • We’ll announce the winner using Prosper Screen Names (find yours by logging into your account and selecting “Settings”).
  • If you are one of our lucky winners, you will have 24 hours to contact Prosper and receive the $1,000 reward.  Contact us at Thanks@prosper.com to claim your reward.

That’s all there is to it… Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and then check back daily to see if you’ve been selected to win some cool cash along with other news relevant to personal finance. And thanks again to each and every one of you in our community – here’s to the next billion!

- The Prosper Team
