Kiva Team FSM has reached $2 Million in Loans

Published March 24th, 2014 by Bobby Henderson


Team FSM has reached $2 Million in loans on the micro-lending site Kiva. We’re now the top-lending religious congregation on Kiva, above the Buddhists, Catholics, Muslims, and — especially pleasing to me – above the Mormons, who we’ve been in a friendly competition with for years. Congratulations everyone!

suck it, mormons

What is Kiva? Kiva is a platform where you can make small loans to people in poor areas that need help starting small business. We make small, interest-free loans towards the projects we support, and Kiva combines them to fund the loan to the person who wants to build a small workshop, farm, restaurant, fruit stand, etc. These are interest-fee loans in places like Cambodia, Peru, Uganda — places where traditional bank lending to the poor is unavailable (or predatory). Kiva ensures that the loans are paid out and that the money is paid back. A lot of us feel this is the best way of bringing economic growth to the poorest areas.

I’ve had a good experience with Kiva and I encourage anyone interested to check it out. And please join our amazing team and help us continue to trounce the mainstream religion teams.

      Fred: If you were living on the street and could not even afford to eat, how did you find the money for an internet account?

      • basicdesign says:

        Keith, it’s possible and I can attest it after 10 yrs street-living: you just have to squat intelligently. The question is, you don’t need $100K to get off the street and when u r in that much shit you do NOT want to borrow that much either coz you know you don’t have the means to repay it and you now you’ll end up in even deeper shit. If you do borrow that much, it’ll be because you have a project good enough to give you the means for repaying it. Then why is this bloke not mentioning that o so good idea, and that the imaginary loan helped him set up his project? Coz none of it is real, qed.

        • Keith says:

          OK, I sit corrected. I have never lived on the streets, so I was speaking from personal observation (or through my arse, depending on how one looks at things).

        • basicdesign says:

          it’s “coz you know…”. Got a crumb under the ‘k’ key, not daring to put the hoover on it lest half the keys get swallowed by it.

          For info, the bigger trouble about having internet connection at home when you’re at the social level of street-living, is not the money: the connection is a lot less expensive than drug or booze (both of which being real plagues in that category of population). It’s the “how to pay it” when there’re no more places where you can pay it in cash and all’s got to go thru a bank account. Maintaining that month after month and no failure is real juggling and serious discipline.

    I can’t, Keith, though it was from about five years ago and may have been SBS. The documentary was about the millions lost each year by Australians to Internet scammers, with interviews of some of the people who were repeatedly scammed. I doubt the research revealed more than correlations of interest to the producer, and, the biggest victims may well remain silent. There has been a lot more research since.

    • Captain Birdseye says:

      Unsurprisingly, Keith, there are now professors who research scam victim profiles. This is a brief comment by one of them. There is no mention of retired detectives or religious folk, but, such groups may well have more of the vulnerability traits mentioned.

      • Keith says:

        OK: Thanks for that. Looks like the website is an advert for a finance company (ie. Bankrate) but it might be worth following up when I get myself organised.

        • Captain Birdseye says:

          Correct, but it’s probably the professor’s accurate comment: ‘No correlations except with being ‘nice”. Social anthropologists may have a lot to say about what is ‘niceness’ and the history of its cultural function.

    • basicdesign says:

      oh. So you didn’t make it up after all. What a weeeiiird world this place is coming to be.
