    • Lenders make lending offers.
    • (ex: I’d like to lend this much to A-rated borrowers for this long and this rate)
    • Zopa lenders only lend small chunks to individual borrowers. (to reduce any risk)
    • A lender lending £500 or more would have their money spread across at least 50 borrowers.
