Wow - Kiva Lending Teams are Amazing

Some of the Kiva Lending Teams are really amazing in the community spirit they create, and the way that they incorporate helping entrepreneurs through Kiva into an existing group - whether online or offline.

Congratulations to Team Obama for hitting $100k on 11/4. You've really shown that rallying a community around a goal - passing $100k on Election Day - can be unbelievably effective.

And congratulations to Team Virginia, who have even created a website for their team and are are selling their own team merchandise on Cafe Press!

I've certainly found myself "stumbling" my day away on the Kiva site by browsing the Lending Teams; it's really fun to see the different ideas which draw people to one another. And better than that, is when a common idea can be shared with a desire to make a difference.

Congratulations to EVERY lending team!!
