Contest: Win A Kiva $25 Gift Card

I posted a bit about the Milepoint Kiva Lending Team the other day.
You can read the post here.

I think Kiva is a really interesting and great non-profit. Their efforts are helping people all over the world become successful due to the generosity of it’s members.
Once you make a loan, you will see progress updates from Kiva through your 
e-mail. As the borrower repays the loan, the money becomes available in your account. You can then fund another loan, donate it to Kiva or withdraw it for something else. There is a 98.87 repayment rate for ended loans.

I joined the Milepoint Kiva Lending Team recently. Milepoint has been deeply involved in Kiva and has made a huge impact with it’s efforts.

Here are some stats about the impact of Milepoint:

  • Number of Team Members: 584
  • Number of Loans: 32,016
  • Number of Loans Per Member: 54.8
  • Total Amount Loaned: $1,510,875

If you are thinking of joining Kiva, why not join the Milepoint team?
