Roundup of Social Lending News – July 2, 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.

There was less news this week with I think everyone gearing up for the July 4 long weekend. But this week brought the end of the month and it was another great one for peer to peer lending with a big record month for Lending Club. Have a great 4th everyone. I will be up in the Colorado mountains enjoying the cooler weather at 9,600 feet.
