    As alluded to in the "Chat with Premal Shah" thread, a new website is being unveiled today by uber-Kiva fan Vijay R. The new site is called Kiva tools ( and over time, it will include statistics on Kiva, but also an opportunity to identifying objective and constructive questions that will help Kiva guide its future. For some, the concern over expiring loans is an important issue and one statistical tool we are considering is a compound funding metric (what types of loans get funded, which ones don't).

    The data pulls the API from Kiva and will be updated frequently. It is setup for public use and any feedback (please post here or email would be greatly appreciated. Content will be added with time.

    More importantly this information will be accessible for Kiva, its Field Partners and fellows to provide guidance on loan postings and selection. Kiva would like to improve communication with its associated MFIs and this is one way of achieving this aim.
