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.
The biggest news of this past week was undoubtedly the new venture capital funding at Lending Club from Kleiner Perkins. This article was covered by pretty much every major business publication online (as well here on the Social Lending Network). I have included two articles, from the dozens published, on this big news below. Perhaps equally important this week was the article on Forbes that talked about 10% yields from p2p lending – getting exposure from such a highly read publication is only going to help the cause at Lending Club and Prosper. Enjoy your weekend.
