When we were in SF recently meeting with Kiva regarding the DO, we spent some time talking with Kiva people including Paul Erikson, the developer of Kivalens. Paul was keen to do things to make our life as lenders easier. Thus, he discussed several things they wanted to do, and was especially interested that soem of us wanted to set parameters and make all the loans that fit the chosen criteria without making a loan-by-loan selection. We now have the bulk lending capability!!! It worked! Once you set your parameters you simply click on the ++ tab and all loans that fit your criteria are automatically loaded. You can select max amount per loan or to simply pay the remaning balance for each loan. I have used it three times and all three times it worked perfectly. I tested several options and each loaded without problems. three cheers for the responsiveness of the Kiva development staff!!!
