    Awesome. Rich Dad, Poor Dad recommends having a “separate” career
    and having money working for you even when you sleep. This seems to
    be a great way to have your money working for you, while borrowers
    get a decent rate, am I getting this right? If so, I’m in.

    Wow, so I don’t have to borrow from the banks any more? Great idea.

  4. Martin:

    I was looking for a loan, and could not find any other way (except
    for going through a bank) to get a decent loan. The only option
    people have is bothering family members or falling on the trap of
    pay day loans. Peer loans is now an alternative to consumers! Great
    job guys.
