Roundup of Social Lending News – September 3, 2011

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. Combined they issued almost $30 million in new p2p loans in August, more than double the volume of just nine months ago. Also Zopa in the UK passed £150 million in new loans issued. You can read about it all below. Have a relaxing long weekend.
