A few times this week the term lone lending has come up. So, it feels like a good time to explain what is special about lone lending. Lone lending is when one lender fully funds a loan to one borrower. Recently I was checking for new loans when a $25 loan came up. Yes, a $25 loan! So, obviously I was the lone lender on that loan! But sometimes other small loans come up and a lender chooses to fund it him/herself. This is not for everyone, because your risk is increased. But if you are willing to take the leap, you know that you and only you funded that loan. This is real person to person lending. Well, maybe not as real as lending money directly to a friend or relative, but in the Kiva context, it is true person to person lending. I've done it one other time with a $125 loan. And other milepointers have done solo laons, too. In fact, yultide started the lone lenders team on Kiva: http://www.kiva.org/team/lone_lenders If, lone lending interests you, just use Kiva's search by loan amount. I did it just now while writing this and found a $75 loan (which I will NOT fund): http://www.kiva.org/lend/369384 Loans under $100 aren't too common, but I do see them from time to time. And congrats to everyone who has taken the leap and become a lone lender! You may be a lone lender, but you are not alone!
