    We are unique among Kiva teams. Kiva might respond well to data.

    So, please tell us:
    1) what citizenships you hold, if more than one;
    2) what country(ies) you live in.
    3) what countries you have lived in

    For this we don't need names...

    Here is the basic idea. Roughly 95% of Kiva members are US only. Among the most active and largest lenders there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that many are not US-centric. Our team is bound to be different and so are we as attendees.

    Single citizenship here (can you guess which one? ;) )

    Places I have lived are Canada and US, though I have worked in the UK for a short period.

    My travel list is more extensive than North America.

    The objective si to emphasize to Kiva the value of treating the FX, non-US tax exemptions (Canada, Australia, Euro-zone, etc) as serious issues rather than just forcing the world to the US$.

    The definition is "self-reported". My personal one was holding a residence permit or owning a residence.

    I won't be able to attend KIVADO, but here are my stats:

    USA citizen only

    In addition to the USA, have lived in (West) Germany and Belgium for about four years each.

    I've lived for shorter periods, but long enough to have a furnished apartment rather than staying in hotels, in the following: France (many times and different locations), Australia, Japan, Norway, England, Portugal, Denmark, Turkey, Israel, additional cities in Germany.

    Additional shorter but still extended work visits include Singapore, Russia (ongoing), mainland China, Taiwan, different city in Norway, more places in Germany, France, Spain, Holland, Canada, South Korea, England, others I'm forgetting at the moment.

    ok..

    I have lived in the USA and S. Korea (only 5months), but I live in the US-Midwest now, although my Korean citzenship has probably lapsed decades ago as I never looked into it.
