How soon after receiving a loan from Prosper does it report to the Credit Bureaus? I assume that it reports as a personal unsecured installment loan and NOT as a finance company? Does it update monthly on ALL three major credit bureaus? Thank you.

For me the Prosper loan reported to TU and EX but not until it was a little over a year old. And their reporting since has been very sporadic. About every 4 - 6 months I go into each bureau and dispute the balance as incorrect. They almost immediately update with the current balance. I would assume that if they are going to update regularly it would be shortly after your payment date.
As a side note - other than their sporadic reporting I have no complaints. It appears on my reports as an installment loan and with the FAKO sites I get no mention of consumer finance companies. I don't believe that is a FICO reason code so I wouldn't expect it from them.

So, what are the requirements and the amounts you usually have for a Prosper loan. I noticed that HoldingOntoHope has scores in the 700s. I think my friend who is interested in a personal loan has all 3 scores in the 670 range.

Prosper will pre-qualify you for a loan and tell you what tier your credit score qualifies for (AA - D?). The interest rate on the loan is based on your credit tier. And it also displays on the funding page for investors to see. My scores when I got the Prosper loan were in the mid to upper 600's and at that time they qualified me as Tier AA. I don't know exactly what their tiers are but I believe on their site you can put in your info and they will give you a rate based on a soft pull. Of course there is a hard pull if you decide to actually apply.

She just got an e-mail from Propser saying here score was too low. They used Experian, and for whatever her acount with the longest history is the one that chose only to report to Equifax and Transunion, so the score from that one is way off from the other 2. Another one that used transunion said they couldn't do it eventhough they reported a score of 717.They're saying her credit history isn't long enough, and her current loan (auto loan) has too high a balance. The loan started off at almost 13K with a payment of $385 in June. I think she's probably paid an extra 100 on each payment. I guess the next step is to try to get the loan under 10K and pay her credit card down to 0 and see what happens in a few months.
