We’ve had a great few weeks at Zopa with lots of people coming to us for loans and thanks to a few high profile spots in the press a lot of people wanting to lend!

We also got a very nice write up from MoneyMagpie, who gave us the very cool title of “recessions busters” and provided an in depth guide into how we work. Have a read here http://www.moneymagpie.com/article/zopa-an-alternative-to-banks-and-a-recession-busting-way-to-borrow-money
