Peer-to-Peer Lending Means Everyone Prospers
Prosper is a market leader in peer-to-peer lending—a popular alternative to traditional loans and investing options. We cut out the middleman to connect people who need money with those who have money to invest...so everyone prospers!
Here's how it works:
- Borrowers choose a loan amount, purpose and post a loan listing.
- Investors view loan listings and invest in listings that meet their criteria.
- Once the process is complete, borrowers make fixed monthly payments and investors receive a portion of those payments directly to their Prosper account.
- Provide basic application information
- Post your customized loan listing
- Watch Prosper investors invest in your loan
- Get your money!
We Protect Your Privacy
Whether you're a borrower or an investor, protecting your privacy is our paramount concern. While we encourage borrowers to tell potential investors why they are looking for a loan, your actual identity is never revealed. And for investors, we offer an ID Theft Guarantee to protect you against fraudulent borrowers.

Seasoned Return calculations represent historical performance data for the Borrower Payment Dependent Notes ("Notes") issued and sold by Prosper since July 15, 2009. To be included in the calculations, Notes must be associated with a borrower loan originated more than 10 months ago; this calculation uses loans originated through May 31, 2012. Our research shows that Prosper Note returns historically have shown increased stability after they've reached ten months of age. For that reason, we provide "Seasoned Returns", defined as the Return for Notes aged 10 months or more.
To calculate the Return, all payments received on borrower loans, net of principal repayment, credit losses, and servicing costs for such loans, are aggregated and then divided by the average daily amount of aggregate outstanding principal. To annualize this cumulative return, it is divided by the dollar-weighted average age of the loans in days and then multiplied by 365.
All calculations were made as of March 31, 2013. Seasoned Return is not necessarily indicative of the future performance on any Notes.
