Roundup of Social Lending News – July 23, 2011

Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.

There was some interesting coverage this week. Major national magazine, Inc., did an article geared at small business borrowers. Several bloggers provided some new perspective and then there was this fascinating article on Netbanker about the rapid growth of peer to peer lending (by yours truly). Enjoy your weekend.
