    Wish I new the exact dates of Zidisha's founding so that I can celebrate its birthday. Its worth commemorating.

      Hmm, good question, Edwin. I'm pretty sure it was sometime in 2009.
      I agree that it's worth commemorating!

      EDITED / UPDATED: I've asked Julia (on the chat platform where we have our staff conversations). She maybe will answer there or maybe will answer directly in here, we'll see! :-)

    Did you already see this great blog post of Julia?
    p2p-microlending-blog.zidis...

    According to this post Zidisha started in 2009 with 4 funded projects.
    And in 2017 it has grown to 64.330 funded projects.
    That’s something to be very proud of.

      Yes, but we're looking for the exact date (month and day) in 2009 when Zidisha first appeared online. Edwin wants us to celebrate the anniversary each year. It's a good idea! :)

      Good job discovering that, Fitri!
      Thank you!! :))

      I was going to post a screenshot of that part of that webpage here,
      but then I saw the copyright notice on Crunchbase's website... (sigh)...

      Wow, I rarely read to that detail about copyright. I'll keep in minds. Thanks for mention it.

    Dear Edwin,

    If you want to, you could click on the "Random" link, and then
    click on the little blue square with a blue pencil in it, which will
    allow you to edit the title of the thread (if you so desire) to:

    "Important Date: October 15th, Zidisha's Founding"

    :))

      Or:

      "Important Date: 15 October, Zidisha's Founding"

      ...or whatever format you normally use for a date...

      ;)
