A lot of my fellow bloggers have been writing about an exciting investment opportunity: peer-to-peer lending, or P2P lending. P2P lending cuts out the banks and connects borrowers with individuals who put up their own money for loans. The borrowers get better interest rates than they’d receive from a bank or through their credit card, and the lenders get better interest rates than they’d get investing their money with a bank or even in the stock market.
Since P2P lending is a new concept to many people, those of us intrigued by the idea want to get as much information about it as possible. Fortunately, a lot of people who have experience using P2P lending sites have written great reviews, so there are plenty of resources for us newbies. After the jump, several articles about P2P lending in general and also reviews of P2P lending sites.
