Qitzur Shulchan Arukh – 180:16

טז: לֹא מַהֲנֵי פְּרוֹזְבּוּל אֶלָּא אִם יֵשׁ לַלֹּוֶה קַרְקַע. וַאֲפִלּוּ כָּל שֶׁהוּא, סַגֵּי. וַאֲפִלּוּ אֵין לוֹ אֶלָּא עָצִיץ נָקוּב, סַגֵי. וַאֲפִלּוּ אֵין לַלֹּוֶה כְּלוּם, אֶלָּא שֶׁיֵשׁ לֶעָרֵב אוֹ שֶׁיֵשׁ לְמִי שֶׁהוּא חַיָב לוֹ לְלֹוֶה זֶה, נַמֵּי מַהֲנֵי. וְאִם גַּם לְאֵלּוּ אֵין לָהֶם כְּלָל, אִם יֵש לַמַּלְוֶה קַרְקַע כָּל-שֶׁהוּא, יָכוֹל לְזַכּוֹת לוֹ לַלֹּוֶה, וַאֲפִלּוּ עַל יְדֵי אַחֵר, וַאֲפִלּוּ שֶׁלֹּא בְפָנָיו, וּמַהֲנֵי לִפְרוֹזְבּוּל

Prozbul doesn’t help unless the borrower has land. Even if it’s a minimal amount, it’s sufficient. Even if he only has a pot with a whole in the bottom [thus connecting its dirt to the ground], it is sufficient. Even if the borrower has nothing, but the cosigner or someone who owes this borrower money [does], that also helps. And if they also do not have anything, if the lender has a minimal amount of land, he could give rights to it to the borrower, even through another party and not before the borrrwer, and the pruzbol would help.
