Deadline extended

I’m extending the deadline another month as I received a few requests from late, but good willing folks =)
If you haven’t, you can still contribute to this project!

Thanks for your support!

15 days left

Dear friends,
We’re a mere couple of weeks away from the funding deadline!

Although you can still participate till the book goes to print, it would be great if you can do it so within the funding deadline.

Thanks again for all your help!

$1000 USD loaned!

Just 18 days after the creation of the Kiva team, we have reached the $1000 USD loan mark!

That’s 40 loans made with the pledged money, now reaching almost three times more than my initial goal, and the signup bonuses collected this week!

I am amazed! =)
