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.
Plenty of milestones this week. We closed August with a bang as far as Lending Club and Prosper were concerned.

You can read about it all below. Have a relaxing long weekend.
