Good Morning Henry.....none of my purchases have posted as yet but I am sure they will.

As far as the loans go, I always tend towards agriculture/food as this is a basic need for everyone.  Unless of course there is an interesting loan like the Ballet Co in Chad.  Just couldn't resist that one.

Hey Queen, I have no doubt they will show up.  Another purchase I made through valuemags.com which dontated 26% to us a whopping $14.00 showed up on my igive page today, should show up in KIVALoans stats tomorrow.  We broke $25.00 I think I will front the $25.00 into KIVA so we can have a loan.  I'll send an email out to our members on IGIVE to decide who to pick in the next few days.

This odd thought came up in my head yesterday when discussing KIVA with a friend, so I'm going to put it out there and see what comes back. 

We can use the KIVALoans money to fund loans. 
In the unlikely event an IGive/KIVALoans Active Participant has a loan go into default they can withdraw up to their contribution total, the amount they have lost as a result of the default loan.
Basically KIVALoan Insurance

Example:  Henry has a $25 KIVA Loan that defaults and repays him all but $18.00, Henry can have that $18.00 reimbursed from the KIVALoan Fund.  The money might not be available until the next IGive Distribution, or when a KIVALoan is repaid, but it's security.  And this security might take the sting out of a loan going into default. Then again, we don't have to excersize this option.  Just an option.

Just something to discuss....  Would only be really bad if it were a loan we all were participants in.  This idea might get others interested in www.igive.com/kivaloans .

let me know what you think.

iGive result -- I have now *received* the Lands' End order I placed a week ago through iGive.org, but there is still no mention of it in my Shopping history. (There is no mention of anything I may have earned through iGive yet.)  I'm willing to wait patiently for a month, but.... are there retailers whose credits for purchases show up right away, or are all of them laggards?

Kind of like waiting for that first repayment email on a loan!   Wink
I've emailed IGIVE regarding Lands End, they are a large company so I would expect them to be fairly prompt.  However, Home Depot is large to and have you ever had to deal with their customer service??? It's almost not worth it!!! Roll Eyes
Will update you when IGive resonds.

In Regards to A Question regarding Hotel Stays Purchased through IGIVE.  Their answer: It is the reservation date that counts, not the charge date.   That sounds to me like, if the stay is not within that 45 day period it might not get the additional $5.00 bonus.
