About Late Loaning Lenders
We hate to see loans being left unfunded on Kiva. Although most of these loans are pre-funded by the Field Partners, the Field Partners lose out on the capital if a loan doesn't get funded on Kiva. We believe that this will damage the Field Partners in the long term and impair their capacity to make loans to new borrowers.
The term starfish refers to this story.
About this site
This site is a tool for the Late Loaning Lenders team on Kiva.
After a loan has been added to the watchlist, the site starts to register all lending actions and indicates whether the lender is a member of the LLL team or not. Also all relevant movements in the popularity ranking are added to a timeline.
It helps to visualize the impact of loans on the popularity ranking and vice versa. A click on the small magnifying glass opens a popup showing more details about the loan and a timeline with lending actions and changes in the popularity ranking.
This site is not affiliated with Kiva or endorsed by Kiva. It's just a small personal project using the KIVA API.
It's dedicated to all members of the amazing Late Loaning Lenders team !
