Creating Passive Income from $50
Did you know that you can create passive income with returns of up to 20%? There are a few peer to peer lending sites that allow you to invest small sums of money for possible big passive returns.
Many people know the common routes to passive income but few know of the peer to peer lending niche that has made nice returns for some investors. The two most popular sites are lendingclub.com and prosper.com. Both sites allow you to invest from $25-$50 per person per loan and for $50 you could fund two loans at lending club and generate nice 20% returns. The best part is you get to see and pick the individual you select to loan to and should any problems with repayment become an issue the sites handle the legal recourses. There are also secondary markets where you can buy in to existing loans from other investors or sell your own loans.
$50 is a small amount of money to invest for such high returns and it is possible to make these returns as I have done it myself. There is risk though but if you can handle it you can roll over your earnings into new loans and be a mini bank.
