    We have a Partner distribution show-off thread, but I think it might also be of interest to see which countries that receive our loans.
    As mentioned elsewhere I go for the poor countries with society building loan purposes, so I guess these all passed my selection :)

    Which countries are benefiting from your loans?

    Here is mine. In much of my lending I try to emphasize some lending to Paraguay, Peru and Bolivia because they share the continent with my own Brazil, but are in serious need. So is Brazil, but we have no Kiva partner yet.

    Did somebody say symmetry? I tend to focus on how likely it is that the person/group receiving the money can make a long-term income from it, so most of my loans are agricultural. The country distribution just turned out like this without any forethought.

    Mine. Most of Central/South America is covered, as are many countries in Africa.

    Hi all,

    Here's my country distribution:

    My focus is on Africa, although I started out "randomly" when I first started lending on KIVA.

    Cheers,

    Am I to assume that you would be discriminating against a certain gender? ;)

    Keep up the good work!

    I can not copy my graph for some reason, so above is the list of the countries I have loaned to. Next new country will make 50 for me.

    I'm brand new, just joined a few days ago, inspired by all of you. Here's my distribution thus far (one single loan)

    kiva-distribution.jpg

    The nice thing is, my wife and I selected someone who hadn't received any loans yet, we were the first, and within two days he was fully funded.

    What shall I say .... very uniform! :D The challenge now is to make it as diverse as possible, within the lending criteria you set for yourself!

    Gargoyle, you have me beat in Phillipines, as my % there is a mere 10.4. But I have a small lead over you in 48 other countries. :p Get lending!! :D

    And it is true that most Kiva loans get funded quickly - sometimes in minutes, sometimes over a few days.

    I suspect we'll stay 100% Philippines, at least for now; we have strong family ties there.

    I could not get the chart to copy. How did you guys do it? My browser is Firefox on Windows 7. I am sticking to North and South America plus Israel for now.

    Hi,

    We don't get to copy the chart, you need to take a screenshot and then attach it.

    Cheers,
