Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.
It seems that the mainstream media are most interested in the borrower side of p2p lending, in particular the small segment of p2p lending that is for small business loans. There were three articles this week that dealt with that very topic and I think probably more than half the stories I cover here from mainstream media in my weekly roundup are about small business financing. It is a compelling story I guess even though small business loans account for just a small percentage of loans issued at Lending Club and Prosper. There were plenty of other interesting articles this week from my fellow p2p lending bloggers. Enjoy your weekend.
