Credit scores climbing on Prosper as borrowers seek alternative financing

08 October 2009  |  1987 views  |  0 Source: Propser

Prosper.com, America's largest peer-to-peer lending marketplace with over $180 million in loans originated, today released p2p lending statistics for September 2009. Prosper also announced that the average credit score for funded borrowers on Prosper was 714 in September, and that the average credit score of borrowers requesting personal loans jumped to 700, up from 620 last year.

"There has never been a better time to be a banker," said Chris Larsen, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Prosper. "With credit card companies hiking rates while at the same time reducing credit limits, people with great credit are looking for an alternative way to get rid of their credit debt and finance their small businesses. The result of the 'too big to fail' institutions turning their backs on consumer and small business borrowers is that individual investors are finding peer-to-peer lending to be an attractive new asset class that enables them to do well while doing good."
