On Sunday morning, 12/14, I awoke to find this email from Kiva:
Your Kiva Credit is now available for use!
Anxiously, I opened this long awaited happy news from Kiva and read:
We'd like to give you a repayment update on the loans you've made
A total of $2.51 has been newly repaid!
Hmmmmmm!! Not exactly what I expected but at least it was a start!! Tomorrow will be THE DAY!!
Needless to say, like John, Jane, Peter & I imagine almost everyone else, I have not received a single repayment on the much vaunted, eagerly anticipated December 15th.
On an account with 964 active loans to not receive even a farthing is rather disappointing.
Of course, Kiva never actually promised that the credits would be here on the 15th. They only said/implied on or about, around, near, close to, roughly, nearly, approximately, adjacent, neighboring, nigh, impending, ballpark, within a stone's throw, in spitting distance of, etc., etc., etc. the 15th.
Well, maybe next year in Jerusalem, Inshallah!!
