“We wonder how much P2P lending will evolve over time, given how solid the rationale is on both sides.  This type of crowdfunding allows those who have built up solid credit to get money they need even for projects or purposes that don’t have any obvious collateral, while it may allow the investors to charge a higher rate to help diversify their portfolios without giving up too much return.”
