“#MyProsperStory really starts when I was a young boy standing in front of a judge who wagged his finger in my mother’s face and said, ‘Lady, if you can’t handle this 12-year-old boy, I have a place that can!’ I was a statistic, another latch-key kid of a single mom who worked two and sometimes […]
Three years ago, we introduced the #MyProsperStory as a way to get to know our community, and better understand how Prosper can positively impact financial wellness. This year the response from the Prosper community was overwhelming!
The #MyProsperStory Photo Contest is back! Once again, we’re inviting you to show us what it looks like to be “on top of your finances” for a chance to win a full loan payoff, up to $35,000.
#MyProsperStory started with an idea: a three-week road trip through Western Europe – just me, my wife, and my camera. We plotted our journey, set our budget, and packed our bags.

My story is one of focus and discipline. I was focused on getting on top of our finances so that I could get in good health, pay my doctor bills, payoff credit cards, raise my credit score, and find a new house.

#MyProsperStory started when I overheard someone talking about Prosper in the airport. I decided to research Prosper on the flight and found all of the reviews by borrowers, investors had five star comments.
#MyProsperStory began on a small farm in rural Dry Creek, Alaska, forty-five miles from the nearest grocery store. I was raised there by my parents, along with three younger sisters and an older brother. Our lifestyle was very much subsistence based and we made ends meet by utilizing the resources we had. There were few lessons on managing debt or investing in the first eighteen years of my life. Instead, lessons focused on living a simple, self-sufficient life.
In 2016, two major things happen to me; first I bought a house and, at 45, single with no children I became the legal guardian of my 11-year-old niece Gabby, who likes to be called Panda G.
Prosper helped me with my financial situation when no one else would. I had emptied my savings to pay for my grandmother funeral, maxed out my cards, and my car was broke down.
