defaults and lower interest rates

I wrote previously about defaults causing me to stop loaning money. Also, it looks like earnings have decreased for lenders by around 3-4% on Prosper’s built in portfolios. This is likely due to the federal reserve lowering rates on loans around the country, but could also be due to the high number of defaults on Prosper loans.

lower interest rates

I think Prosper is a fantastic concept, I hope they weather the current economic climate, find away to improve borrower screening, and get even tougher on debt collection!
