I've made my first loan on prosper.com. $50 lent at 11.45% interest to a AA credit borrower. I am concerned with the large number of credit inquiries, however, I believe this person has been fishing for a best rate, hence the high number. Otherwise, I need to make sure I have a large number of loans to absorb defaults.
I guess we'll see when the first payment is due mid-June.
I have about $350 more in outstanding bids and another $100 available for bidding. I expect to put in $100-$400 per month into prosper, though probably toward the lesser side due to the illiquidity of the loans.
Have a wonderful day,
