Prosper Marketplace Kicks-Off the #MyProsperStory 2016 Photo Contest

SAN FRANCISCO, November 1, 2016 –Today, Prosper Marketplace kicks-off the #MyProsperStory 2016 Photo Contest. Now through November 15th, borrowers through Prosper are invited to show the world “what it looks like to be on top of your finances.” The grand prize winner will receive a full loan payoff, up to $35,000. First and second place winners will receive $5,000 and $2,500, which will be applied to their remaining loan balances, respectively.

“Mounting debt – largely fueled by high interest credit cards rates and fees – is a real pain point for many Americans,” said Aaron Vermut, CEO, Prosper Marketplace. “For the third consecutive year, we’re excited to give back to our community and hear amazing customer stories of how they used a personal loan through Prosper to take control of their finances.”

In order to enter, Prosper borrowers are asked to submit a photo and caption about their Prosper experience. To enter this year’s contest, please visit:
