Refinance Prosper loan through Lending Club

In addition to expanding to borrowers from all 50 states, Lending Club recently made loan statistics more accessible to members. I was recently browsing through the loans and came across an interesting loan request from August 2007:

Loan title: Refinancing Prosper loan...
Loan description: I am looking to refinance my Prosper loan, which is currently at 22.75%.
Amount borrowed: $5,400
Lending Club interest rate: 12.17%

Wow - if the description is accurate then someone really reduced their interest rate by refinancing their Prosper loan through Lending Club. I attempted to find the original loan on Prosper but was unable to. There are only three loans on Prosper from Massachusetts that match the 22.75% interest rate and none of the personal information and credit history seems to match. It is possible that the borrower moved. The borrower may have also entered false information. Unlike the personal credit history, there is no way to verify the loan description information. If the provided information is accurate, then perhaps the borrower greatly improved their credit score between loans which could account for the great rate through Lending Club.

In addition, there are a couple of borrowers on Lending Club looking to invest the requested money on Prosper borrowers. LendingHelper says, "I will use the money from this loan to re-invest in Prosper...I have been a lender for 7 months, and see it as a good way to diversify my investments. Also, I want to analyze Lending Club from a borrower's standpoint." Another borrower, Tessvis, writes, "I am seeking a loan of $15,000 help me get back on track...and reposition my self to invest in a positive cash flow system such as Prosper." I recommend these borrowers and anyone planning on borrowing to lend read Matt's article Borrowing money to lend on Prosper: Wise or Foolish? It may be possible for some to work the spread but it is much harder than it looks.

Current loan requests on Lending Club are quite varied and include debt consolidation, tuition, investments, business funding, cosmetic surgical implants and much more. With the new national expansion the number of requests for loans has greatly increased. Lending Club is offering great incentives to those who want to invest including a $25-50 sign-up bonus and an additional 5% bonus to those who invest more than $4,000. On top of that, they just raised interest rates by .5%. It's a great time to invest. (If you are a new lender and want to receive the referral bonus you must sign up by clicking on a referral link such as this one.

Here are the borrowers you can invest in right now and the associated interest rate. Sign up and login to see the full loan details and borrower's credit profile.

Eliminate high interest
Its time to get rid of this high interest debt. I have three credit card with high APRs. I am just throwing money away by paying these companies loads of interest. I know that paying off debt is a process and not an overnight miracle, so what I would like to do is tackle one of these at a time, starting with the one with the higher interest. If this works well, then I would most likely return to the site to get another better rate loan. I would much rather pay my fellow hard workers this money than these big time banks. I do have the high interest on the cars because of some credit issues in the past. Mostly stemmed from racking up debt while I was in college. Even with the troubles I have had in the past, I have managed to bring my score to up over 700. I've done that by not missing a payment in about 5 years, including the mortgages I have held. My past does not reflect my habits today, or my goals for tomorrow. I am very serious about getting rid of this debt, so I will not let you down. Sometimes it just makes me sick. If I can answer any questions for you, please do not hesitate. Thanks for considering.

Ambitious start-up ready to grow
About APK Developments: Thank you for taking a look at my loan request. I trust you will find this to be a unique, and quite interesting, so I thank you for your support. My business is APK Developments, LLC, which started in 2002 to develop advanced shift systems for the motorsports market. These are semi-automatic shift systems for motorcycles, race cars which use sequential transmissions. In recent years, this has been a booming market due to advancements in manufacturing techniques which have made sequential transmissions more affordable, increasing their demand, and the demand for shift systems to extract the full potential of a sequential setup. The purpose of this loan is capital for the numerous R&D projects current, file for patents, manufacturing add-ons, and brand building. My current position: I work a day job, so this is done on the side, and has been treated as a hobby so far. This past year I took the next step to make this into something and funded heavily in setting up a place of business, as seen in the above photos. A couple years ago, the MS-100 was developed, which is the fastest air shift system on the market for drag motorcycles. Last year, the MS-120 quick shifter was introduced, which is the only system on the market for motorcycles that automatically adjusts each shift, so that each shift, is at it's optimum. This is one of the things to be patented. Currently, plug and play kits are being developed for popular bikes to provide the customer with a simple installation. Market indications for the MS-120 are great, as there are people waiting for plug and play kits to be available for their bike, however, I can not supply the demand without the needed manufacturing add-ons. Note that a number of these customers have been waiting for months, when they could have gone with the lower priced competitors products. This speaks volumes for my product, which is made to the highest standards. What's in R&D? A market I didn't forsee with these shift systems is that of mobility aids. I regularly get requests for a system to be developed to up and downshift a motorcycle for disabled riders. This niche would allow injured riders (the primary request) to get back on a bike. I have found one company that produces a viable system, however it is primitive, and I have heard of many comments on it's bulkiness. Everyone requesting me to develop a system compliment the quality present in my products, and hope to see the same in a system designed for this niche. This challenge in R&D has resulted in a system in development, that will need a number of patents filed. Secondly, is that of the race car market. With paddle shift systems gaining in popularity, there is a need for more cost effective systems for the middle levels of motorsports. For the lower levels (amatuer), higher quality systems at an affordable price. As for brand building: The website is being completely redesigned (almost done). The company logo has been updated. A marketing plan is in place, and needs to be executed. This is initially done by sponsoring motorcycle racers for the coming season, which is an investment in itself. For more information about APK Developments, and it's products, please visit APK Developments website at www.apk-developments.com Thank you.

Equity building in home
We need to make some improvements in our home including kitchen upgrades, bathroom upgrades, home office improvements and build a workshop for my husband to work in. He is self employed and works with antiques and wood work. He required heart surgery in May of this year and was not able to work for several months. We are currently paying back medical expenses that our insurance did not cover. We are both self employed and my office is in the home. A workshop where my husband could work out of the elements would be very beneficial. He has been working outside on the carport and in the house! Needlessly to say this is diffcult on the house and our quality of life. He has recently been able to start back working and it sure would be easier if we had a place for him to work. I need to improve my office space as well. I have my own business as a marketing and public relations consultant and a professional fundraiser. I have been doing this for over 25 years and decided to start my own business about 5 years ago. The coming year looks very good for me. I have found a niche working with cities and rural areas on finding funds for infrastructure such as water, sewer, community centers, etc. I work with the government a lot to secure funds. I also do a lot of work with nonprofit organizations. Currently, I have 5 regular nonprofit clients and 3 towns as clients as well as other agencies that I do periodic work for. It is rewarding work and I enjoy it. My office is getting cluttered and needs to be reorganized for better work conditions and to be able to have someone come in and help on occassion.

I believe we can save money by getting a lower interest loan and using this money to pay off all of these creditors once and for all. We have definitely learned our lesson about responsible credit. I ask you to help us out so that we can become debt free again and then be able to continue to save to that we may afford to buy a house some day.

Reducing current car loan APR
Unfortunately, due to the economic situation of my parents, I was forced to take up a car loan as soon as I turned 18 in order to secure transportation for school and work.

Plus, I would reduce the payment period for up to one year. I've been engaged for more than a year and plan to marry this August. This loan would definitely reduce the amount of stress which my car loan has inflicted upon me already, especially in the future considering I'll be juggling the wedding along with my graduation at the same time.

I had one collection back around 2002, it has been paid in full, but lists as "Paid Charge Off." All derogatories come from this card, and have not one one late payment (30 day or otherwise) in 5 years. Monthly net income: $ 3574.71 Monthly expenses: $ Housing: $ 600 (split $1200 rent with wife). Insurance: $ 100 (car insurance) Car expenses: $150 (approx) for gas. I do not have a car payment. Utilities: $ 120 (Electric, Gas Combined) Phone, cable, internet: $ 250 Food, entertainment: $ 500 Clothing, household expenses $ 200 Credit cards and other loans: - Student Loans: $400 a month - Juniper Card : $175 a month - $5000 balance (some of this card would be paid off. - Discover Card: $90 a month (this card would be paid off with this loan.) - $2587 balance - Capital One Card: $15 a month - $400 balance - Direct Merchants Bank: $67 a month ( most of this card would be paid off with this loan.) - $2543 balance - Best Buy Card: $51 a month - $1500 balance - Kay Jewelers: $100 a month - $1100 balance This comes to approximately $2698 per month in expenses (please note that I have been making more than the minimum payments on several of these cards. After my monthly expenses and prosper loan I would put the rest toward lowering my other debt (cards). Thank you very much for your consideration, Mike

We have a solid history of paying our obligations on time and will continue to do so, happier in knowing that more of the payment is actually going toward the principal, and there is an end in sight.

Home Mortgage and Taxes
My wife and I split up. She lived in the house we purchased together and I moved into a condo. She was in the real estate field and when that went down she had no income and had trouble finding a job and making the payments. She talked me into getting a second mortgage so she would have a cushion and to pay back income taxes. That money went fast. We worked it out that I would move back into the house and she would move out. I would make the payment on the first and all the property taxes and half the back taxes and she would pay the second and the other half of the back taxes. She lost her job and I have been making all the payments. We thought about selling, but the house would be a short sell and we would get nothing out of it. I have our kids with me and with her not making payments, my credit score has went down and refinancing is impossible. I just want to catch up the mortgage and pay the taxes. I plan to sell the house when the market gets better. I can manage once I am caught up. I just need a little help.

Would rather pay you my interest!
Hello, I am interested in getting a better rate for my credit card balance. I am 39, have been happily married 15 years, have a great job with a university where I have worked for over four years, just received my third promotion in two years, and have excellent credit. I have NEVER defaulted or paid late on a loan. I have a very good interest rate already, 9.9%, but with my stability and good record I am interested in something better and would prefer to work with folks in the community than my big credit card company.

Finally pay off ankle surgery expenses
Hello people...just found out about this website thru creditboards.com and I wanted to try it out. The purpose of this loan is too consolidate my med bills due to an ankle injury I suffered earlier this year (word of advice...never run down the stairs to catch a train!) The payment would go toward surgeon costs and to pay off the rest of my 6 day hospital stay. I'm currently at war with my insurance carrier because they refused to cover the cost of my second surgery to remove a screw from my ankle. So I want to take care of this bill now so that my credit stays intact and I will be able to negogiate a better mortgage rate for when I purchase my new house. Thanks!

First Time Airplane Purchase
Loan Purpose My husband is a new Private Pilot and we are now looking to buy our first airplane. We�d like your help to buy an airplane for two reasons. First of all my husband would like to progress towards more advanced pilot ratings with an eye towards a future career change. Acquiring an airplane will allow him to train for those advanced ratings in a more economical fashion. Secondly we live in the Alaskan bush during the winters. This means that all of our supplies come in to us via aircraft and this acquisition will allow us to more readily access larger towns. We are considering the purchase of only airplane types that historically have held their value well such as the Cessna and Piper aircraft companies offerings. As it is with many others, it has been a lifelong dream of ours to own our own airplane � we�d be honored if you helped us to actualize that dream! Borrower Background / Explanation of high DTI I have been a public school teacher for around 13 years and my husband has been steadily employed by the National Park Service and now Chugachmiut, both incomes will be used for the purposes of loan repayment. We are both in our mid 30�s and own our own home and do not have any children, so other than a car payment this would be our only major expense. I earn $ 2,650/mo. net as a teacher, and my husband makes $1,500/mo. net for a combined monthly net of $ 4,150. We could only claim income from one of us, hence the high DTI. Monthly Expenses Before LC Loan: $ 2,145 Housing: $650 (only 8 months of the year, during the summers we live rent free in our summer house which is paid for.) Insurance: $80 Car expenses: $540 Utilities: $130 Food: $400 Loan payments : $220 Student Loan: $125 Monthly Expenses After LC Loan: $3,033. Bottom Line We always keep our promises - as is reflected in our credit history with no late or missed payments. Thanks for considering us as a possible investment. I know that if you choose to do business with us you won�t be disappointed!

Medical/Payday Loan Vicious Circle!
Hello, and thank you for looking at my request. Due to unforseen medical expenses built on top of my usual bills, I borrowed on payday loans--doing this put me into a hole that I'm having a hard time getting out of, although I make good money. Unfortunately, most of my paycheck goes to pay down on these loans. I would like to use my Lending Club loan to completely pay off the payday loans and the remainder of my medical expenses so my paychecks will be free and clear again! Any help would be sincerely appreciated! Thank you!

Clearing the table

What I found really surprising is that the largest lender (at the time) took out a second mortgage to lend.
