Sample Lending Club loans (earn 7.12% to 18.36% returns)

This week nearly 100 borrowers made it through Lending Club's hoops and are now looking for funding from lenders. As PLP pointed out, most of Lending Club borrowers are eliminated in the screening process. This is because they have a FICO lower than 640, a debt to income ratio higher than 30% or a current delinquency. All the following potential borrowers meet at least those minimum requirements. Jeff and Heather who blog about peer to peer lending on My Microfinance also have a loan in this week's listing. Like at least one other person, they are trying to refinance their Prosper loan through Lending Club.

Here are the borrowers added this week and the associated interest rate offered. Sign up and login to see the full loan details and borrower's credit profile. If you are a new lender there is currently a $25 referral bonus or $50 if you invest more than $1,000. There is also an additional 5% bonus for large lenders (over $4,000) and a recent interest .5% rate increase.

wedding loan
Recently accrued charges on my credit card due to preparation for a wedding that I cannot pay off immediately. Total charges are about $3800. I ussually carry a zero balance on my credit card but the expenses of the wedding made this rather impossible. (Ring, food, dress, accessories, etc.) I will use the money to pay off my credit card to avoid the high interest rate (11%). I would like to pay off the loan in 3 years or less. I want the monthly payments to be small enough so that making the payments would not be too taxing. ($100 - $150) Would like the option to prepay the loan without penalty.

Looking to re-fi high interest cards
I am looking to re-fi high interest credit cards at a better rate. I've implemented my own debt re-payment acceleration program with the goal of having everything paid off in 3 years, but the interest rates on these two cards will cause it to be dragged out about a year longer than that. I'm already paying more on these cards than the payment on a three year fixed loan would be, so a loan at a substantially better rate would actually lower my payments.

So I have a $1500 hospital bill with no way to pay it back, and it will soon be going to collections. In addition, I am planning on applying to graduate school to become a teacher, but there are several tests I need to take as well as other expenses associated with starting graduate school that I can not afford (CSET, CBEST, etc.). The first use of this loan would be to pay off my medical bill so that it does not go to collections. Second, I would use the rest to get myself on my feet and get into graduate school.

New Business
I am in the process of becoming an independent trader/investor after 15 years in the financial services industry. The main reason for this decision to try a new endeavor is that it would hopefully give me more flexibility regarding in terms of my time so that I can spend more of it with my children. Some think I may be a little crazy to give up a relatively well paying job. But I wasn't making so much much money that not spending more time w/ the family was worthwhile to me in the long-run. Anyway, I still have a plan and it does involve some risk as trading/investing is obviously not an easy thing. It's something I've always wanted to try when I was younger but I think I now it's the right time to try it. While this loan will have no impact on my decision, it will help in terms of my funding. One of the biggest obstacles to be successful in trading independently is the mental stress of having to worry about funding. This would help a bit on this front.

Credit Card Debt Consolidation
A friend of mine who is a "Lender" on the site invited me to join. I have maxed out my two credit cards (WaMu and Capital One). Though I pay twice the "minimum payment" every month, I am predictably getting charged ridiculous APR's that keep me from making a dent in the overall debt. I also have an overdraft "credit card" attached to my checking account at Wells Fargo, which ideally I would like to clear since the APR is also sky high. I have good credit, excellent references, and have a nominal "guaranteed income" every month in addition to my work income that ensures I can make payments toward a loan of this size. Happy to set up Automated Bill Pay, as well as provide any additional information requested. Best, Jesse M

Electric Car Promotion and Consolidation
My business has a unique electric car prototype that I have financed entirely on my own. We need additional capital to complete our business plan in order to attract larger financing. Some of this will come in business loans from banks. However, I have used some of my personal credit cards to finance the prototype and that has reduced my credit scores from their previous 750 plus levels, even though I have a perfect payment history and no negative information at all three credit bureaus. Part of this loan will be used to further reduce the credit card debt and part will be used to prepare for the aforementioned purposes. With the business plan, there will be larger funding from angel investors and venture capitalists. Our electric car is among the first, perhaps the very first all electric lithium ion battery powered luxury sedans. Early green technology adopters are currently accustomed to paying a luxury price for an economy car just because it is electric. Our car is available to be ordered right now as a luxury car for a luxury price. The prototype was created by converting a brand new off the dealer show room floor 2007 Acura TL. We can perform the same conversion again for interested buyers who want delivery in a few months. The venture capital financed versions of the car will be available from a production facility in a year of two. These will include luxury, economy and mid range cars powered by both lithium ion and lead acid batteries.
