    I missed that second accomplishment. Good job that's quite and achievement. I joined you earlier (edit: on the loan).

    Both of those are fantastic milestones -- chipped in another $75 on that loan as well!

    New country alert - Bangladesh. Just a single loan ($50k) so far, so it may end up like Papua New Guinea. Have now made loans to 89 countries.

    Is the Kiva site very slow for you?

    It takes a long time to login, maybe a minute or something. I just counted it going from a inner screen back to my account by clicking on my image in the top right it took roughly 68 seconds. I'm wondering if maybe that is related to having a high loan count (7500)?

    Or the alternative question is does the site load quickly for you and do you have say a loan count under 1,500?

    Was more than a little slow for me but I have more than 1,500 loans (just over 3,200). However, I did (finally) hit the $100,000 threshold today! :cool:

    Its been slow for me for quite sometime both at work and home. using IE webmaster's tools it shows 38 seconds for login. Some of the web parts were already cached.


    Good job!

    I'm experiencing the same. I suspect you're right about the loan count as the cause.

    May the 4th happens to be my Kiva Anniversary -- received a message that today marks 7 years since Randy and associates matched my first loan.

    I'm happy to say I made something like $5k in loans in April from repayments and a bit to finish some spend on a card and only had about 3 that closed out unfunded! Sometimes I feels like close to 50% of the short term loans can be unfunded, so I was very happy to not get tons of non funded notices.

    Hey lots of Tonga loans today! With 16 loans everyone should get a chance today and maybe even for a few days.

    FYI last month submitted a complaint about slow account page loading for large lends and they said they would send it on to development. One other email asked if the loans page was slow, its not - they do have some sort of caching there. Hopefully they can do something similar to speed up the account page.

    The Kiva country count is theoretically down to "75" -- don't know which ones most recently lost their Field Partners.

    Just realized that the Inside Flyer team has recently topped the $15,000,000 mark and has gone over 200,000 loans made. Well done, everyone!
