    Right now there are 34 of us lending on Kiva. We are having fun and doing some good in the process, plus we will get almsot all our money back, which most of us turn around and relend. Kiva is a microlender that really does work and is really effective. So please join us:

    The 34 of us are from nine countries, with three of us being anonymous, so we have no idea about those three.

    We are from:
    Australia- Queensland and Victoria
    Brazil
    Denmark
    Germany
    Hong Kong
    New Zealand
    Norway
    Switzerland
    The United States- 13 states
    Alabama
    Arizona
    California
    Colorado
    Florida
    Indiana
    New Jersey
    New Mexico
    New York
    North Carolina
    Washignton
    Virginia

    The US and Australia have the multiple memberships with the US leading. California is the leader with 5, followed by NY with 3. We have no one at all from GA, home of Delta nor Texas, home of AA nor Illinois, home of UA. Thus all the Americans need to start recruiting their compatriots!

    Australia, with a battle for supremacy between Queensland and Vicotoria, has no members from New South Wales, nor Western Australia.

    Brazil has only one lonely member, so I had best hustle!

    We have entire countries with no members and no place is well covered. We need to work hard this month.

    Remember that every new loan you make will be matched well more than $2 for every $1 you put in in March, and there will be new contributions made for every new member also.

    Come join us, please!

    As of today we have our own forum so we can begin even more discussions. These can be on distinct topics, though, so they probably will not be so redundant as were some of the older ones.

    I was just beginning to make an update. I am blown away that the original post was March 14 and there were only 34 of us then.

    And hopefully your work will be obsolete before you finish it because so many new members join this week. :D

    Of course it is obsolete! There were "only" 182 members when I started this. At this moment there are 190. When I started we had $69,725 outstanding, now we have $73275. By the time I click "post reply" these numbers will probably be obsolete too. What a day!!:D

    We have all of the MP co-founders and a bunch of MP Guides but I wonder what the statistics are for the percentage of Guides who belong to the MP Kiva team? Maybe some Guides could be approached individually and urged to join?

    No, I just noticed that some of our Guides have been posting in the Kiva subforum.

    I'm sure many have already joined. I'll bring it to the attention of the other guides. They are all good people.

    Great! I suspect you may have joined after the data, or maybe your Kiva profile did not include the state. I counted from the Kiva profile. of course, there's also the possibility I made a mistake.

    Hi,

    There's at least another guide already on the team ... me.

    (And I see that the updated list added me to GA, and removed Switzerland from the list as a result :D)

    We should count each country when there are multiple residencies, maybe, should we not?
