Whether you are a small-scale business entrepreneur or if a housewife who needs funds for a home improvement project, you can start to take advantage from something that is getting all the hype in the Internet today. It is called social lending, where the concept is similar to borrowing money from friends or family. If you borrow money from banks or traditional lending companies, they will usually charge you with high interest rates even though you only need a few thousand dollars. In the end, because there is a need for the money to be on hand immediately, you would just decide to live with such high interest rates. This problem is eliminated with social lending – which is also called P2P loans (peer-to-peer) which may often even be categorised community loans. Typically, companies which provide these services use the Web 2.0 technology and are online based, so they are also called P2P lending and borrowing sites. There general goal is to provide better interest rates than borrowing from a bank or a lending institution. Zopa.com, Prosper.com and Circlelending.com are examples of P2P sites.
