Fynanz: peer-to-peer lending for an illiterate generation

I take it back, I take it back. No, not all modern students are illiterate. I blame the worldwide shortage of decent urls and a lack of respect for vowels.

Still, from Monday this week students (in just a couple of US States, for now) have had the opportunity to finance their days of loafing and Teletubby watching through a new peer-to-peer lending service Fynanz.

Same territory as Zopa, Prosper, Lending Club, etc, but slightly more focused audience. Although out in China Quifang also focuses upon payment for education (so new they don't have a site built yet...).

Which student generation do you back to pay off their loans?
