The purpose of this empirical study is to determine if the orthographic quality of the description of a loan's purpose predict the total funding probability in a peer to peer lending platform. I hypothesize that the data I collect will show a negative correlation between spelling errors in loan descriptions and probability that the entire loan will be funded.
