Update: Kiva Zip Loan
A few days ago, I was informed that I became part of a Kiva Zip program:
"I'm now part of an incentive program with Kiva. Here's the deal -
•If I invite 25 total lenders who lend, Kiva will tweet about my loan and feature me on the Kiva Zip main page.
•If I invite 35 total lenders who lend, Kiva will match any following loan up to $500 and send me a Kiva Zip t-shirt.
•If I invite 45 total lenders who lend, Kiva will send a marketing email to the Kiva Zip lender community about my loan."
As it stands now, I have three days left. 67 lenders and 45% raised. There's still some hope that I will, through some sort of epic loan spree, raise all within the deadline (Nov. 12). I've already been moving ahead with projects - and looking for more freelance work. Another thing, on the casual side, looking for work in other states, even countries. If I don't succeed here, I think that's a sign that I should look for more successful venues elsewhere.
Anyways, here's the invite link - and even if you can't loan, pass it on, maybe someone else can and thanks in advance.
