    In the nearly four years that Zidisha has blossomed to help microfinance loans to entrepreneurs in Kenya, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Indonesia, Benin, Niger and Guinea it has built a small but helpful following (just like Milepoint ... small but helpful!). Milepoint Cares is part of that following and our team of lenders currently ranks at the top of Zidisha lending groups with 20 members and over $90,000 lent.

    TO HELP, Milepoint Cares is introducing our March for Mini in which all active members of the Zidisha lending group will be eligible from a random drawing to win a single Apple iPad mini—one of the most popular reading/internet devices today.

    An Apple iPad mini will be awarded to a random member chosen from the listing of active members of the Zidisha team who are current members of the team or have joined before March 31, 2013 and have made at least one loan to an entrepreneur. ALSO, if the team total of loans exceeds $125,000 before March 31, a second iPad mini will be offered and there could be two lucky winners of an iPad mini when the random drawing takes place on Monday April 1, 2013.

    The Zidisha Lending Group is HERE.
    The instructions are HERE.
    More Milepoint team information is HERE.

    Have a great time finding and funding entrepreneurs in other parts of the world and also good luck which your chances of winning that iPad mini. The question then will be ... what color of mini do you want?


    WINNER RESULTS
    Greetings team members and here's the results:
    There were 50 members of the team at close of the contest. I deleted myself and added all the members submitted to me from Team Captain KyRoamer into a spreadsheet which assigned a numeric number to each team member (equally 49 since i omitted myself). I then used the handy random.com to have it choose two random numbers between 1 and 49. The two winners of the iPad mini on behalf of the Zidisha Lending Team are mtlfire and TravelBear.

    Congrats to both and below are the winning results.

    I think I will start doing a couple of random draws myself and give away a couple of $25 Zidisha gift certificates.
    So MPZLT members with at least $25 already lent do qualify. Let's get this party moving!:cool:

    Countdown to 125K and Mini#2 : a touch under 27K to go!

    I just joined the MilePoint team, then helped someone buy a refrigerator, then discovered I wasn't on the MilePoint team list so I clicked "Join" again and now I'm with you guys. Don't think my first loan counted towards the team through. I'm still with Kiva also.
