March brought growth for the major p2p lending services. Ratesetter managed to pass Zopa and Funding Circle in newly originated loan volume in the UK. I added one new service to the table. Note that I have switched the reporting currency to Euro as all but two services are located in Europe. Several p2p lending services reached major figures for total loan volume funded since inception:
- Zopa crossed 500 million GBP yesterday
- Funding Circle crossed 250 million GBP in loans
- Ratesetter reached 200 million GBP in loans
- Prosper is approaching 1 billion US$ in loans and will celebrate that with a giveaway
- Lending Club has crossed 4 billion US$ in loans
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.

Note that volumes have been converted from local currency to Euro for the sake of comparison. Some figures are estimates/approximations.
