Kiva Atheists first to reach $3 million

On December 2nd 2010 at 7:13am Pacific Time our team of Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and the Non-Religious reached three million dollars (USD) in Kiva loans!



It's been about 6 and a half months since we hit our interim milestone of $2 million in loans. We are pacing to loan about $1 million every 7 months, which is spectacular. We are still hovering at about 2% of the total Kiva volume in loans; since Kiva has raised $150 million so far.

Our team has grown 12,500 members and our team message board is as interesting and entertaining as ever. We are 900 loans away from 100,000 loans!!!

Neda, from Kiva.org, stopped by our team message board to post congratulations from Kiva.
CONGRATULATIONS to the members and team captain of Kiva Lending Team Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and the Non-Religious. We are thrilled to announce that for the first time in Kiva-history, a lending team has reached $3 million in loans! Earlier this year Pete the team captain had set the goal of $3 million in loans by the end of 2010, great execution on reaching this milestone before the end of this year!

The Lending Team consists of 12,498 lenders, who have made over 98,715 loans! THANK YOU to all of the team members for their dedication and support of Kiva entrepreneurs!

Community Engagement
Kiva.org

We are doing a fantastic job as a community and are leading by almost a 2-to-1 margin in terms of dollars lent and members on the team. I want to say a big thank you to all our members new and old. And to those special members that keep up the good quality of the conversation on the board and to those who go out of their way to build things the community needs and uses!!

I hope to see everyone on the message board for our upcoming New Years Loan-A-Thon. After that next get together we can come up with our 2011 year end goal and maybe even an official interim goal.

Never forget the message we send to the world: Our common humanity is what inspires us to make the world a better place. Human intervention and teamwork is what can bring about human flourishing in the world.

Cheers,
Pete
Team Captain
