Guidelines for Making a good loan listing

Important TIPS to follow when you create your loan listing.

1. Tell your story: In your own words, why are you here and how will you use the money?

2. Say how much money you make right now

3. State how much bills you have every month (itemize the list and put a total)

4. Show the balance left available to you after all bills are paid

5. Have your loan vetted by your group leader by providing any documentation that will help your loan to be funded. See how here

6. If the funds are for a business, mention how much money you expect to make a month, and when you expect this money to start flowing

7. If it will increase your earning potential, for example a course, or a car, explain how.

8. If you have extra funds coming from a spouse, mention this

9. Do not borrow more than you can afford to payback. Remember many people are here because the banks will not give them a loan or a reasonable loan. So messing up this opportunity could be you destroying your last chance

10. Use the online calculator to see how much your monthly payment will be. Click here

11. Do not request an unreasonably high amount. It will scare off lenders, and also will be hard for you to pay back.

12. Use Images and Links to supporting documentation:

13. When you write your listing, the objective should be for lenders to trust that you can pay, not to feel sorry for you. They are not giving you a hand out. They are giving you a loan, and are more interested in seeing that you can pay back. not necessarily because you are seeking for sympathy.

14. Choose a reasonable interest rate based on your credit grade. For example, If you are a HR borrower, it will be hard to get your loan funded when you list it for 3.75%. Click here to see a reasonable interest rate for your credit rating

15. Use the Longest listing period available to give lenders enough time to make a decision to bid.

16. And please, ask someone to proofread your listing and use spell-check!

17. If your credit grade is an E or below, make your listing period 10 days

Have your loans vetted before you you list

If you ever took out a bank loan, your bank or loan officer definitely asked you for some documents to support your loan application. With the prosper process, most of your lenders cannot verify all this documentation therefore will not bid on your listing.
Vetting is the process where borrowers send supporting documents to their group leader, so that he can vouch or them by endorsing their loan, citing what documents s/he has reviewed.
This can really facilitate your loan being funded.
If you will like to have your loan to be vetted, please send me whatever supporting documentation you would like to go with your loan listing. You can either fax it to
or email it to
