    Just got notice that all of Komak's loans (Azerbaijan) have been officially defaulted. That's 17 for me. :(

    On the bright side, credits start flowing tomorrow. :)

    Received a $20 "gift" as a credit to the Kiva Store because "You’re among a small group of people who go above and beyond to make the world a better place, and we want you to know that it’s appreciated!"

    Glad to receive it but in this day and age of retailers its hard to not see a coupon as just a way to convince you to spend more money at the store...

    I got one, too. Whether I'll use it remains to be seen. But I do accept it as a well-meant gesture and not just encouragement to shop.

    Oddly, I hadn't been receiving any emails for my Kiva acct for a while now. I finally looked at the acct settings & somehow I was not set up to receive any emails!

    I'm not checking kiva that often these days, so I'm very happy that KivaLens.org is working again for bulk lending.

    Also I enjoy the "Iolaire: your personal 2016 impact" email received yesterday. It was a good reminder of how recycling money is good. There was lots of re-lending old and new money.

    The personal impact email was indeed a welcome reminder of the good that others are able to accomplish with the small bits of capital that we lend. Full credit to the clients.

    In 2.5 weeks, I will be out and about on the Inaugural Kiva Lender Field Trip!

    Probably should get around to booking that hotel ...

    Hi everyone! I haven't been in here for ages! What's happening? I'm currently studying a Masters degree so that is keeping me busy. Our daughter is two now! I'm still making Kiva loans. Still knitting.

    What have you been up to?

    I'm currently recovering from the flu (have been sick since leaving Mexico City) but will post (as promised) a full review of the inaugural Kiva Lender Field Trip as soon as I feel a bit better.

    The team is just $30,000 away from hitting the $14 million mark in lending.

    A milestone worth celebrating!

    We crossed the $14 million mark!

    Well done, everyone! :cool:

    And credits should be arriving in under 36 hours, so we can get started on the $15 million line.
