The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals announced that it will work with Prosper, an online lending marketplace, to offer its members a financing option for their customers. Prosper connects people who need financing with those who have funds to invest and offers credit-worthy customers access to personal loans between $2,000-$35,000. To date the organization has helped facilitate over $5 billion in personal loans.

“We want more people to enjoy the benefits of our industry’s products so we are making it easier for our members to sell more with financing options,” APSP president and CEO Rich Gottwald said in a press release. “This is just one step in our effort to make pool, spa, or hot tub ownership a reality for more people.”

Gottwald encourages APSP members to visit to learn more about the program.
