description

Prosper Lending offers peer-to-peer lending services that allow individuals to loan money to other individuals. It's a very interesting alternative to normal banks. Prosper's main focus isn't on consolidation loans, but we still feel they may be worth looking into for some individuals. If you're the type that needs more specific guidance, then you may want to visit BestDebtCompanys.com and look at some of the other top rate companies. Interested in learning more?

Who Are They?!!According to their company website,

“Prosper is America’s first peer-to-peer lending marketplace.” The company is set up to allow people to invest in one another with borrowers listing loan requests up to $35,000 and individual lenders investing in each loan listing they choose. Lenders will consider a list of qualifications of each borrower to decide whether or not they choose to invest. Prosper has a role in servicing the loan between the two parties. !!!

What Services Do They Offer?!Personal  loans  arrangements  ranging  from  $2,000  to  $35,000.  They  set  up  the  mee;ng  place  for  borrowers  and  lenders  to  meet  each  other  and  make  arrangements.      Our  review  on  BestDebtCompanys.com  refers  mostly  to  the  loan  consolida;on  services.

How Does It Work?!It  starts  with  borrowers  choosing  a  loan  amount  that  they  hope  to  receive  as  well  as  a  purpose  for  the  loan  and  a  loan  lis;ng.      Investors  then  review  the  loan  lis;ngs  and  choose  those  that  meet  their  par;cular  criteria  for  funding.      Once  an  agreement  has  been  met,  the  borrowers  make  the  fixed  monthly  payments  and  the  investors  receive  their  por;on  through  their  Prosper  account.

How Do They Rate With The BBB?!Prosper  has  been  a  BeJer  Business  Bureau  accredited  business  since  late  2012.  They  meet  all  the  requirements  to  be  listed  in  good  standing  and  hold  an  A+  ra;ng  with  the  BBB.  They  have  received  numerous  complaints  within  the  last  few  years,  but  most  of  those  complaints  have  since  been  resolved.

What Makes This Company Stand Out?!

Instead  of  seeking  the  approval  of  standard  lending  services,  borrowers  can  appeal  to  individual  lenders  who  may  be  just  regular  people  looking  for  a  good  investment  opportunity  and  a  way  to  help  someone  else  at  the  same  ;me.

Do They Maintain A Social Media Presence?!

What Does BDC Think of This Company?!

Their  current  score  is  a  6.8  out  of  10  for  their  unique  approach  to  solving  debt  issues  and  finding  financial  freedom  through  loans  and  inves;ng  opportuni;es.  They  do  have  some  strict  guidelines  for  being  approved,  such  as  a  credit  score  of  at  least  640  which  many  people  struggling  with  debt  might  not  be  able  to  currently  provide.

Potential Negatives!The  company’s  main  focus  isn’t  about  helping  others  consolidate  their  debts.  Their  focus  is  on  loans  and  inves;ng  which  can  be  a  great  tool  for  growing  wealth  and  geang  funds  when  needed,  but  for  those  who  have  already  struggled  with  paying  for  loans  in  the  past,  they  may  want  to  look  for  a  service  that  will  help  guide  them  through  the  debt  consolida;on  process.
