Celebrating 1 Million People Empowered by Prosper

Nearly 15 years ago, Prosper launched as the first peer-to-peer lending platform in the U.S. As of today, more than 1 million people have gotten a personal loan through Prosper!  

We’ve grown in more ways than one, but our mission to promote financial well-being has always remained the same. So we’re taking this opportunity to celebrate all the borrowers and investors who’ve used our platform to help each other—whether by tackling debt, financing a major expense, or investing in consumer credit.

Over the years, we’ve heard from thousands of our borrowers about how a loan through Prosper helped them get back on track and on top of their finances. Here’s just one of their stories:

#MyProsperStory is that I had a major surgery, meaning I could not work for a number of weeks. The hospital accounts department, as well as the doctor, required me to pay a significant amount of money before the date of the surgery even though I had health insurance. Prosper helped me by processing the loan in an efficient and quick way and they did not require a long drawn out process of submitting paperwork. Ultimately, Prosper made a very difficult situation much easier to deal with as I was able to pay the hospital in a timely manner without penalty, interests, calls from collection agencies, etc. Thanks Prosper!

From everyone here at Prosper, thank you for being a part of our journey!
