Today is a huge day for Prosper.
We crossed over the $1 billion mark in peer-to-peer loans. Its been a long road since the first loan in 2006. Since then the $1 billion dollars issued through Prosper went towards helping people fix their debts, pay medical bills, chase their dreams, and much more. The greatest thing about it? That $1 billion came from people who truly wanted to help others’ financial situations, while simultaneously helping themselves.
We’re a billion dollars closer to showing everyone in the U.S. the new way of doing personal finance, and we couldn’t do it without you. We are excited to hit this milestone but it’s just the beginning! We are looking forward to hitting the $2 billion milestone this year as well. We love being in the business of bringing people together to help each other, and we hope you stay in touch as we become the biggest peer-to-peer lending community in America.
