Reviews is the oldest and largest social lending network in the United States, with close to 1 million members originating $200 million in peer to peer loans. The company has raised $43 million in venture capital and continues to rapidly expand. Borrowers can get loans for up to $25,000 and as more lenders commit to their loan, they’ll see their rate continue to decline. Meanwhile, lenders can place as little as $25 into a single note, or invest via Prosper’s automated portfolio plans. A burgeoning secondary market also enable investors to trade notes that have already been issued.

But is it right for you? Here are some prominent reviews to help you to decide:

    Lending Club can be a great source. But it can take a while for bids to come in. Before going this direction I suggest trying for a regular loan first. If you are confused on where to start i would try. they were able to get me a 25k loan at 9.25%. It only took about a week.
