BoeFly.com, launched in March, has already spurred approximately $1 billion in loans, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. The site's founders said that because it matches those wanting loans with lenders, it can act like matchmaking site.

Robert Tannenhauser, president of the website, recently told the news source that the role of his site was "kind of like a dating service ... what we're doing is cutting out the inefficiency."

The site allows both lenders and borrowers to post applications on the site, sending email alerts to the lender when an applications meet their pre-disclosed requirements. The demand for this type of website has been staggering. Small business owners have posted approximately 210 million loan requests for an array of different business proposals.
