    I just completed my first Kiva loan, only to find a little balance hidden in my paypal account allowing me to make a second loan (which I put the final contribution to before it hit the funding point).

    Cheers to these and many more.

    Note to self: add this to my LinkedIn profile. Come up with a cool VC company name and find a Mailboxes ETC on Sandhill Road to rent a mailbox ;)

    Congrats, murakami!

    Welcome, I hope you find the act of supporting others rewarding.

    One item I especially like is one you get a few hundred dollars active you start getting enough repayments comming in that you get to make new loans without hitting PayPal and your wallet. At that point you are really leveraging your money, by making more than one loan per $25 - so it snowballs.

    Thanks for all the kind words. I will likely put in a little but here and there for now and once the repayments come in will just keep the juice flowing.
