Craig, nice start, congrats. Kiva is one of the best nonprofits online IMO. Matthew, Jessica, Premal and the team are doing an incredible job there.
Hopefully at some stage they can work with their MFI partners on the ground and help develop indicators that a family has moved out of poverty (like Grameen has done): http://www.grameen-info.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=23&Itemid=126
If you get a chance and feel inclined, please feel free to join the Kiva Ned Lending Team: http://www.kiva.org/team/neddotcom
Be well.

I still wonder why a name that sounds like a Native American Indian name, yet
this group is not helping anyone here in the U.S.
Pine Ridge Indian Rez has unemployment that is extremely high 60 percent, 80 percent.
I am glad folks in Palestine are being helped, I just would like to see help also for our indigenous residents, who helped folks when they came to this country, but then were rewarded by having their land stolen they children taken and put in boarding schools, and in California even a bounty for the scalps (see Jack Forbes book California and Nevada Indians of some such title).
Just saying.
