After patiently waiting for this day for six weeks, I woke to find no credits!  It's about 5:30 AM Eastern, so 2:30 Pacific time, and neither the account I run for the company I work at (373 active loans) nor my personal account (25 active) has a single penny in credits.

Am I to understand that when the 14th of the month is a Sunday or holiday, the credits won't get posted until the 16th?

I am sort of allowing two days to process wire payments and then update the accounts.  Kiva would do well to let people know these things, though.

 Cry This is a sad day for me .I signed up for kiva because it was a great concept that  I could afford.I really liked being able to give people a hand up not a hand out .I have seen first hand how many kiva recipients live .These small loans give them an opportunity to make a significant change in their families and their community .They can have a trickle up affect on everyone around them. Maybe I am cynical but this is not a good sign to me .I haven't seen regular repayments since October.I don't expect repayment from every loan recipient,but those that do repay I do expect the credit and will withhold any further loans until I see major changes .Does anyone know of another similar program that I may use to do that's similar? Huh?Good news !!!!I have recieved over $80in kiva credits so far between today and yesterday.While this is not all that I expected it is a major step in the right direction.Thank you kiva .

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
through Kiva.

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!!

To be fair to Kiva, 15 December means all day - it is still only 4.30 a.m. Pacific time. We are used to credits coming through first thing after midnight. However, perhaps with the new system they can be released only during the working day - starting in 4 hours or so - after netting out and so on, as at today's date, has been worked out. Its not all automatic and predictable any more. Doubtless our credits will arrive in time - surely no connection with Mr. Madoff!

Geoff,
could you possibly tell me/us which MFI the $2.51 came from?

Thanks a lot and best wishes,
Wolfgang.

Gladly Wolfgang,
                                                                                                                                         
The credit was from YOSEFO in Tanzania on this loan to Raphel Lema.
                                       
You are more than welcome,
Peace Geoff
