Get a "Green Loan" for Home Improvement
Help the planet (and save money) with green energy loans
Now is the perfect time to consider "getting off the grid" and switching to renewable green energy. Whether you install solar paneling or go with a water preservation system, your energy savings can be significant when you green your home. Every little bit helps—for your budget and our planet.
But the initial technological costs of going green can often prove daunting to many of us. Prosper can help with our green loans. We strive to assist worthy social causes—and helping the environment through green energy initiatives benefits everyone.
Consider starting with small steps. Going green may not demand a complete remodel of your home. Energy-efficient green roofing and green windows can help dramatically lower your heating and cooling costs. And if you live in a dry environment, consider switching over to green landscaping that uses native plants and flowers. Not only will you enhance your curb appeal, but you may significantly lower your water bill too.

Does my credit score affect my loan?
Yes. Most lenders will look at your credit history, and Prosper lenders are no exception. If you are sure you have bad credit, you may want to consider improving it before you apply. If you are not sure of your credit score, we can help you find out now, for free, with no obligation.
The Prosper community does not require "perfect credit." If you have an average to an above average credit rating, one way to expedite your loan funding is to ask another Prosper member (especially a lender) to endorse you. Don’t know any other Prosper members personally? Invite a friend to join.
