    Hi Dolphins! Please consider Theophilus and his mobile physiotherapy clinic. His loan expires today. Happy New year!

    Hi Dolphins. I made my first loan today. Love your name and the intent behind it.

    Hi All,
    Do you look for particular loans when lending to borrowers on Zidisha?

  • Ishaque     Nov 23, 2012

    Welcome to all. Sorry, I didn't see any of the messages for this team until today. I guess, I didn't scroll all the way below :-). BTW, I love loaning on Zidisha. I can't believe that my original $1900 in uploaded funds has more than doubled to $4300 in impact lending. Indeh, I don't have any advice either. I read the loan profile to get additional info. Sometimes, I will lend based on loan expiration, sometimes on rates, sometimes on prior payback timing.

      Hey there indeh,
      Come on in. The water's fine. Glad to have you join us. Not much advice. Just read the profiles and help someone out. If you are interested check out the Zidisha Marketplace that just became live on Monday.*
      Thanks for joining us!

      Hi Indeh!

      Welcome. I liked the name too. I,personally, use a combination of the person's energy and interest rate. I've been doing microfinance for several years on this site and others and I have found that when I lend to someone because it "feels good" they do well and re-pay the money.What I love about Zidisha is that they screen the borrowers so the money goes to what we are lending it for.Hope you have lots of fun on Zidisha. I know I do!
