I have only been working for Zopa since June 2010 but I am always amazed by the speed of growth here and the amazing member community, and our next exciting landing mark will shortly be upon us all. In the next few weeks Zopa lenders will have loaned Zopa borrowers more than £100m in total since we first launched. That’s huge! Back in 2004, if you had been asked to lend a tenner to a stranger, you’d probably have laughed, but now look; tens of thousands of people have lent tens of millions of pounds to complete strangers and just about everyone has been better off for it.
So once again, we say a big thank you to all our members for making it all possible.
Now in the spirit of my love for data and pretty things, below is a visualisation of what £100million can do!
