October was overall a good month for p2p lending services. Especially Zopa did grow and closed a bit of the gap to the 2 other UK p2p marketplaces . Prosper reached a total volume of 2 billion US$ originated since inception. I added one more service. I do monitor development of p2p lending figures for many markets. Since I already have most of the data on file I can publish statistics on the monthly loan originations for selected p2p lending services.
