    My thoughts on loans to pick..

    * no hard and fast rules, what works today may not work so well tomorrow
    * looking for saveable loans that might otherwise expire
    (say between $50 and $100 per hour needing to be raised, between 3 & 24 hours to expiry when added to this thread)
    * bias to loans that may be attractive to many MPers
    (shortish term, non-US, low default rates, etc)

    What are your thoughts?

    How about ayda to start? Less than a day to raise the last $1325, but I think we can do it.

    $1325 to raise in 21h = $63/hr.
    double repayment Aug 12, last repayment Feb 13
    FP 3.5 star, 3% delinquency, 0.6% default

    Thanks, I also posted an expanded description on the message board. We have a good start, hopefully as the US folks start the day they will begin to hammer on this loan ( http://www.kiva.org/lend/425046 ) and close it out.

    Team good job, we started at 18% funding for this loan ~12 hours ago and now with 8 hours left there is 68% raised, and $475 to go.

    If you have not already joined this loan please consider joining 19 of your fellow Milepoint members by supporting Ayda in Peru.

    If you are not already on Kiva ,one of our team can refer you, and give you a free loan you so that you help Ayda in Peru with no money down on your part!

    You all twisted my arm - added a loan to Ayda today (but credited this one to FoBH).

    Thanks, don't worry about where you credit your loan. You are still helping the team and Ayda.

    Although this loan will be funded, it is a bit of a race against the clock, so we might want to pick the next loan with a few days remaining for funding to allow a few more days for our members to respond.

    Thank you very much team, funding of Ayda's loan is complete! 19 of our members supported her loan along with 33 other Kiva members. Funding sped up later in the day, I believe our strong showing in the AM helped kick up the popularity of the loan and resulted in complete funding.

    Please will someone pick a new loan?

    I suggest a loan with a few days remaining for funding to allow a few more days for our members to respond.

    I'm in also, thank you for making the pick. Please will some members help to keep the tread active throughout the night/day wherever you are located? We need others to see our featured loan throughout the next 14 hours to insure we find members who are able to join us.

    I also posted again on our Kiva page.
