With Credit Day almost here, I've taken a look at Pro Mujer's fundraising loans.  They don't have any with deadlines immediately after credit day, but there is a 4-day period coming up (Sept 23d through 26th) when they have TWENTY loans set to expire.  (That is to say, 20 of the 24 loans they have fundraising now, which need to be funded before the next credits come in October.)

It would be great if those lenders who like Pro Mujer would lend early, to get the number down of loans that will need to be pushed at the last minute before the deadline.  I've highlighted below the four loans that are set to expire on Sept 23d, and two each from Sept 24th and 25th.  (Pro Mujer has 6 loans on each of those latter dates.)  Please consider lending some of your shiny new credits to these, soon.

Sept 23 loans:
http://www.kiva.org/lend/755442 Lider Grp $3975 to go
http://www.kiva.org/lend/755443 Poderoso $3800
http://www.kiva.org/lend/755444 Luciernagas $3700
http://www.kiva.org/lend/755448 Totora $4225 (CHEESE)
Sept 24 loans:
http://www.kiva.org/lend/755919 6 de Agosto $4500 (FLOWERS)
http://www.kiva.org/lend/755960 Luna Radiante $4475
Sept 25 loans:
http://www.kiva.org/lend/756708 Estrellitas $5500
http://www.kiva.org/lend/756727 Margaritas $5775


Totora Group

Rich.

EDITNot news photos and not, all of them wonderful, but there's a lot of pleasure to be had if you go here and scroll down to the group in the category of "Latest Wonders."
That's assuming you haven't already been to this website, before, in which case, if you haven't, you've got quite a treat in store for yourselves

At last!  Kiva posted an update re Asasah.  Still pretty short on info about what, exactly, went wrong at Asasah.  (Poor management, or fraud?)

Quote
Status Update - August 21, 2014

Asasah continues to face serious operational and financial issues that threaten the organization's sustainability and has failed to meet its payment obligations to Kiva lenders since August of 2013. Asasah currently has about $570,000 in outstanding debt to Kiva lenders that is now considered delinquent. Kiva has worked with Asasah to try to recover these funds and has negotiated a new repayment plan for 20% of the outstanding balance over the next 12 months. Kiva will continue to pursue recovery of all outstanding funds, including payments due from this and any future repayment plans agreed upon with the partner, and will pass those funds on to lenders if and as they're received. We are also planning to send an analyst to do a thorough on-site monitoring visit before the end of 2014. Asasah has successfully repaid more than $6.3 million in Kiva loans and has been a Field Partner for more than 6 years.

I'm sure everyone has already heard about the Ebola crisis in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.
It is pretty heartbreaking to read how things seem to be only getting worse, not better, with some areas hit with the virus lacking food imports, people ransacking treatment centers, and the idea that people dying from it are going uncounted, untreated, and the spread isn't able to be better controlled.  Cry
