    Everyone who joins Kiva and everyone who makes a loan is a member of the Kiva team. Even if you are anonymous, even if you never join a lending team, even if you used a free $25 loan and didn't put any of your own money in, you are still a member of the Kiva team.

    Here are team stats as of this morning:
    Total value of all loans made through Kiva: $295,129,925
    Number of Kiva Users: 1,141,066
    Number of Kiva Users who have funded a loan: 733,400
    Number of countries represented by Kiva Lenders: 218
    Number of entrepreneurs that have received a loan through Kiva: 749,902
    Number of loans that have been funded through Kiva: 385,379
    Percentage of Kiva loans which have been made to women entrepreneurs: 80.40%
    Number of Kiva Field Partners: 147
    Number of countries Kiva Field Partners are located in: 61
    Current repayment rate (all partners): 98.94%
    Average loan size (This is the average amount loaned to an individual Kiva Entrepreneur. Some loans - group loans - are divided between a group of borrowers.): $390.81
    Average total amount loaned per Kiva Lender (includes reloaned funds): $259.25
    Average number of loans per Kiva Lender: 7.91

    Please note that we wil soon (today maybe) loan to our 750,000th borrower!

    That is great. Not so good is the amounts refunded & expired are approaching 2% of amounts lent ($5.05 / $274.43).

    BTW that ratio understates the expiry problem because only amounts lent and refunded are included. If total loan value of expired loans was included instead the figure would be higher (by the amount unfunded at time of expiry).

    Amazing (and sad) that one in three people who have gone to the effort of joining Kiva have not made any loans.

    I agree, but there's always hope. From time to time I come across someone who has just made thier first loan after joining Kiva two or three years earlier.
