This is the resource page. Whether its understanding peer to peer lending better, understanding your borrowers better or understanding your own credit better, this is the spot. These are the tools of the P2P Lending trade.

Peer to Peer Lending Platforms

Prosper.com- the first and still one of the biggest and most popular lending platforms

Lending Club- the largest peer to peer lending platform

Zopa- the largest UK based peer to peer lending platform for our English friends or those that want to lend or borrow in GBP (the British pound)

Kiva- a wonderful microfinance lending platform that provides loans where they are needed most, often to very small businesses in very poor countries allowing these entrepreneurs to sustain themselves and feed their families. A very rewarding site and platform and you can loan as little as $25 to change someone's life.

 

The Credit Bureaus

Understanding what is in your credit report or those of your borrowers is vital to minimizing risk and maximizing returns through peer to peer lending. here are the credit bureaus.

Equifax

Experian

TransUnion

 

MyFICO- a site by Fair Isaac, one of the most important companies in the industry of credit as their scoring system, called FICO is the typical credit score used by our lending platforms.

  1. hi stu,

    • Hello Rudi, there are a couple of European based p2p lenders but I don’t know of any at the moment that are based in Belgium. Bondora and Auxmoney in Estonia and Germany, respectively are 2 of the most established. All the other largest ones are in the UK and require being a resident or citizen of the UK in order to use their platform.

      If you are having trouble there, you can get on one of the Bitcoin sites and convert your Bitcoin you borrow back into Euros for your needs.

    • Hi Rudi, I am in the same situation (also in Belgium), have you found a P2P lending site for Belgium already? I am not able to find one myself. Auxmoney seems to operate solely for Germany and Bondora for Finland, Spain and Estonia.

      regards,

      Bert
