Earlier this week, Zopa’s investor community lent its 3 billionth pound to UK consumers.This news follows our biggest ever year in 2017, including a record month in November when we became the first consumer peer-to-peer platform in the UK to lend over £100 million in one month.
Every penny of that £3 billion has gone in to providing simple and fair loans to UK consumers with good credit histories. So, what does £3 billion look like? It’s helped get 147,000 cars on the road. If you lined them up bumper to bumper, the Zopa traffic queue would stretch all the way from our offices in London to somewhere near New Delhi. Back in 2015, it only went as far as Istanbul! We’ve also helped consolidate 129,500 debts into a more manageable form.
