Thanks to our BusinessWeek visitors

What a weekend!  

Since our article in BusinessWeek came out on Friday (page 64 if you haven't already seen it) we've received over $10,000 in loans! Businesses have been funded like hot cakes, and our partners have all seen the article online and were excited to send extra loan requests last night due to the jump in site traffic.

L.A. Party Success - Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who made it out for our Los Angeles Awareness / Fundraiser party last Thursday, July 13th! 

We raised over $1000 for Kiva.org , which is great -- but what's more important is that numerous attendees who'd never heard of Kiva.org before the event identified with our mission and made loans on the site; if that's you, thank you even more! 

Join us at the Kiva.org Awareness Party in L.A.!

Lounge 217
217 Broadway
Santa Monica, CA 90401
(310) 394-6336

When: Thursday, July 13, 9:00pm (that's right - tomorrow!)

Following the tremendous success of our San Francisco, we are hosting an awareness party in Los Angeles. Come along and meet some Kiva.org crew, learn more about Kiva.org or just get an early start on the weekend!

We're Moving In!

Today Kiva.org had our first team meeting in our new office space! Complete with hardwood floors and a great cafe across the street, we're all looking forward to holding meetings around the water cooler and figuring out how we'll decorate. What will really make us feel moved in is when we put up our 8' x 13' world map and mark each place Kiva.org's loans are reaching across the globe. 

We are now located at: 
2180 Bryant Street
Suite 106
San Francisco, CA 94110-2141
Ph: (415) 641-5482
Fax: (415) 641-1515 Many thanks to all who have made this possible.
