My story is one of focus and discipline. I was focused on getting on top of our finances so that I could get in good health, pay my doctor bills, payoff credit cards, raise my credit score, and find a new house. During this time, I received an offer to apply for a loan through Prosper – thankfully! I decided to apply for a loan to consolidate my debt was approved.
Prosper has helped me to get on top of my finances and in turn helped me minimize stress and maximize my overall quality of life.
Our wedding was a dream… but paying for it became a nightmare! It started out as a small Scottish gathering, then blossomed into a rather large affair. We ended up having more people which meant bigger venue, more food, and a lot more drinks! We had to put so much more on credit cards then we’d planned.
#MyProsperStory started when I overheard someone talking about Prosper in the airport. I decided to research Prosper on the flight and found all of the reviews by borrowers, investors had five star comments.
#MyProsperStory began on a small farm in rural Dry Creek, Alaska, forty-five miles from the nearest grocery store. I was raised there by my parents, along with three younger sisters and an older brother. Our lifestyle was very much subsistence based and we made ends meet by utilizing the resources we had. There were few lessons on managing debt or investing in the first eighteen years of my life. Instead, lessons focused on living a simple, self-sufficient life.
In 2016, two major things happen to me; first I bought a house and, at 45, single with no children I became the legal guardian of my 11-year-old niece Gabby, who likes to be called Panda G.
