Here are a few of the most interesting Prosper statistics I was able to dig up. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.
Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Prosper stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%

What is Prosper?
Since its launch in 2006 as the first marketplace lender in the US, Prosper Marketplace has evolved into a personal finance company that offers products and services beyond personal loans to help people get on top of their finances. Through Prosper’s flagship loan product, borrowers get low, fixed-rate loans with no hidden fees or prepayment penalties and investors can earn great returns through the platform’s data-driven underwriting for personal loans. The Prosper Daily app helps people stay on top of their money, credit and identity. (source)
