Giles Andrews, executive chairman and co-founder of Zopa, said: "There are lots of explanations for why people are overly-optimistic about the time it will take them to pay off their debt.
However, following the establishment of ZOPA other lending platforms followed, including a clutch specifically targeting businesses: Funding Circle in the UK launched in 2010.
To use a simple example, if the seller of a house will accept a minimum of $200,000, and a prospective buyer will offer at most $250,000, the ZOPA is between those two figures--$200,000 to $250,000.
The film documents Tenzin Zopa on his search for the reincarnation of his late master, Geshe Lama Konchog, who passed away in 2001 at the age of 84.
The idea effectively began when Zopa, the first online business linking lenders and borrowers, launched in March, 2005.
Initially Zopa seemed an obvious destination for both borrowers rejected by banks and lenders not worried about whether the occasional loan blew up.
This deeply moving film was shot over the course of four years, as Tenzin Zopa, the "heart disciple" of the deceased Lama Konchog, follows the signs and astrological indications that will lead him to find the one "unmistaken child" who will take his master's place.
Zopa is affiliated with credit unions across the country, which members must belong to, and lenders invest in certificates of deposit and choose which borrowers get financial help.
