I have taken interest in peer to peer lending as a side-investment, here you can see some information and sites
http://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/092315/7-best-peertopeer-lending-websites.asp
and google is your friend for more.

I made this topic to gather information more suitable to our type of persons.
For example, it is not easy to find which sites accept international customers. While there is lots of choice for UK, other countries are not so well.
Another is funding options, we would love to find e-wallet accepting ones.
If there is interest and help, I could reconstruct the information and make something like a 'best buy' guide, or someone with more knowledge on the matter can do it.

I read sometime ago a guy who is similar minded with us arbers (guy is doing matched betting etc.). He had a blog post about
Funding circle which is peer to peer lending site. After reading his blog I was very excited about it but sadly it accepts investors only from UK. So I am also interested of lending if there is good solutions/sites for international investors. I am putting the link to blog about Funding circle but arbusers can freely delete if it offends forum rules. http://www.arbing.co.uk/higher-return-funding-circle/

Oh, I have found a few sites that accept customers from Europe.
https://www.bondora.com/
https://www.mintos.com/
https://www.twino.eu/
http://www.finbee.lt/en/

Funding seems to be only via bank account for the above.

Ireland has also

https://www.grid.finance/

Google search for bitcoin peer to peer lending shows lots of results, I will go through them when I get some time.
Then I will also need to educate myself with bitcoins...

I think there is some studying to be made  ;D. Some of those linked companies are based on Poland, Estonia, etc. so I think it is advisable to perform some checking about companies and how they regard investments in their company bookkeeping before investing. I don't know about these companies but I think it's better be sure than sorry  ;).

With bitcoins you actively get yourself affected on currency fluctuations with your investing. And with bitcoins the currency prices are quite a rollercoaster.
