Kiva Lending Team: Kiva Flash Mob
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.
Primary Flash Mob time is 9am US West Coast / noon EST / 6pm MET / 4am AET
If you can't join the primary Flash Mob, a second Flash Mob time is 11pm US West Coast / 2am EST / 8am MET / 6pm AET
SUMMER USA SCHEDULE. As in previous years, during our summer, the Kiva Flash Mob loan will be a Monday - Friday operation. Lending always dips severely at weekends in mid-summer. We shall return to the full, 7 days a week listing on Saturday September 17th,
The loan will be posted two to three hours in advance to give you time to research it. For maximum Flash Mob impact, please try to loan exactly at Flash Mob time.
