That works too!
We were clearly thinking & poasting at teh same time!
Just joined the team and send a email to CS to ask if they can credit the free loan to the Milepoint team
Excellent! Welcome to the team!
I am interested
Great! Here is a link for a referral (as it needs to be from an existing member)!
Welcome to the world of Kiva lending!

I have a tingly- gonna do good - good karma - help others- feeling
Thanks YULTIDE!! My guardian angel!
I finally had a chance to write up a Kiva blog post and posted it this afternoon. I explained a bit about Kiva in general, the MilePoint lending team, the Mutual Fund, and of course, the free $25 trial loan. It's already been reposted by a couple of people, so hopefully we will see some new members as a result. If anyone wants to take a look at what I wrote, you can either use the link to my blog in my signature or CLICK HERE to go direct to the post. Let me know what you think.
Thank you for posting this information on your blog.
I used your link to make a free loan to a lady trying to start a food cart business in Peru! Not really sure how all this works but it costs me nothing and helps someone, so why not! I also joined the Milepoint Kiva Team!
Welcome to the team and to the wonderful world of Kiva lending!
Thanks for joining us and welcome to the team!!
Thanks for joining us.
Ok, I've done it - $25 loaned. Question: would you like to write a short intro for Kiva which I will post on my blog? my blog is new and travel related, but it is geared towards runners. If they don't know of Kiva, maybe this would be a good way to get word out? my blog link is below - and you'd have carte blanche on what to write - its your decision (but of course I think it would be cool, or I wouldn't be asking!). thanks again.
incidentally, the loan that I funded was a group in Bolivia who need the funds to buy sneakers for sale...
My post here has a lot from the "About" page on Kiva. I have had a hard time communicating how fulfilling Kiva is, so I decided to let Kiva speak for themselves. Using the loan you referenced above would also be a great tie-in for runners.
Glad you took the plunge!
Don't hesitate to ask any questions. There are lots of knowledgeable people around here.
For a blog blurb, how about something like this:
Kiva allows ordinary people to help other ordinary people to improve their lives. For just $25 you can invest in helping someone to invest in their business. Billions of people around the world have no access to banking of any sort. When a hard-working person has access to capital to invest in improving their business, they can improve their life and build a better future for themselves and their family. And as they succeed, they pay back the loan. So then you can lend out the same $25 again to help someone else. It's not a donation, it's a loan.
Kiva is about investing in making the world a better place by helping people improve their lives, $25 at a time.
