    Thanks missed that one...

    I'm having a problem where with kivalens.org with lending a few weeks apart I end up leading to the same people twice. I thought it was supposed to download your loans and prevent that?

    I only noticed because I have some loans that closed unfunded and it refunds $50 rather than $25.

    Have you sent that forward to the KivaLens developer? I've never used the service to manage loans (I still choose manually), so I'm not familiar with that process.

    No, I'm just going to try to lend once per month so it happens less. Also I tried chrome today incase it was an IE related error...

    We're coming up on the $15 million mark in total loans for the team. If not this month, then we'll get there in early November.

    Personally hit 3,000 loans today -- next milestone will be $100k total (probably in January).

    Interesting. I had to look it up, and didn't realize my last Mongolian loan was in 2014.

    I just noticed the same email in a spam folder of an account I have never used for Kiva. It almost looks real - I haven't had my gallon of coffee yet today - but there are too many things that give it away. Stay safe out there.

    Today I broke 7k in loans! 1.52% default rate, 0.48% currency loss. First loan made Aug 15, 2006 7:13pm PDT.

    I should qualify that number with $182k lent but $21.69k was refunded from expiring. I think they still count those loans. I actually stopped lending on expiring loans because so many that were almost funded still expired without being fully funded. Now I lend on short term loans and have less that expire.

    I too concentrate on short term loans.
