Now that we have a few team members keeping statistics we can reflect on our past lending history.
JimNZ made note of our totals for the 24 hour period Pacific Time on July 1st.
Aaaannnddddd we're done for the July 1 Loan-a-thon! July 1 has just finished in Pacific standard time, which is the Kiva.org home location.
Our finishing position from this 24 hours :
Number of Team Members 4666
Number of Loans 21814
Number of Loans per Member 4.68
Total Amount Loaned $656,900.00
*Updated as of Jul 02, 2009 12:31 am
The starting position :
Number of Team Members 4646
Number of Loans 21544
Number of Loans per Member 4.64
Total Amount Loaned $649,750.00
*Updated as of Jun 30, 2009 12:31 pm
So that's :
20 new members
270 new loans (at $25 each, that's $6750)
$7,150 loaned (therefore some loaned more than $25 to a recipent?)

Kiva/doesn't seem to be in the same timezone as Kiva.org, but does show a satisfying jump in total value.
I noticed by looking at the graph below that it looks like we lent more on the April 1st Loan-A-Thon than the July 1st Loan-A-Thon, however a significant amount was lent on July 2nd so maybe some people got their loans in on the second; we're not all in the same time zone so I like to think the Loan-A-Thons are really the first of the month with a 12 hour grace period before and after the special day :-)
Another thing I noticed is that on Loan-A-Thon days we loan approximately 75% as much as we do on the 15th of the month when we get our recycled money. So we should all pat ourselves on that back for our Loan-A-Thon results since most of the Loan-A-Thon funds come in from "new money".
