We loan because...
we want to bring lenders from different teams together and show some Kiva love to loans have so far been overlooked. We want to help get them funded by organizing a Flash Mob to these loans.

The effect of many lenders loaning to the same loan at the same time is that the loan will show up on page 1 of the popularity sort, which is the default page that most lenders look at when they come to Kiva. So besides the loans from the Flash Mob team, Flash Mob loans often attract many additional loans from other lenders who just happened to log into Kiva at this time. Sometimes a loan gets completely funded within the hour!

Feel free to keep attributing your loans to your favorite team, it is fun to see many different team logos on the same loan.

About us
Primary Flash Mob time is 9am US West Coast / noon EST / 5pm MET / 3am AET


If you can't join the primary Flash Mob, a second Flash Mob time is 12am US West Coast / 3am EST / 8am MET / 6pm AET

The loan will be posted an hour or two in advance to give you time to research it. For maximum Flash Mob impact, please try to loan exactly at Flash Mob time.

For email alerts with just the daily loan link, please join www.kiva.org/team/KFM_messages and set your email preferences for that team to immediate delivery. For a comprehensive description of the Flash Mob loan, to talk to other Flash Mobbers and to suggest loans, please join this team.

Loans selected for the Flash Mob are typically within 2 weeks of expiration (preferably red-boxed) and completely unfunded or lacking a substantial amount. For suggestions please message the captains.
