    That's really too bad - it's a great idea, but I guess people who want to take advantage of a system will find ways to do that.

      Hey Tom, I'm preparing to pull out of Zidisha. I am losing money right and left with loans that are being marked as "paid in full" on the lender's page, but nothing is being returned to me for re-lending. Are you able to look into this?

        Smart move Mary, I've put in almost a grand in loans and have lost 70% so far. I think I'll stay with Kiva, and my Kiva Mormons Team. Just waiting for more credits to transfer back to my bank. Sorry this site turned out to be such a bummer for the both of us. Thing is, the person's first loan is small and they pay it off FAST. Then they are ok'ed for a larger loan. That they pay off fast too. Then they ask for a huge loan....no one hears from them again. I think some of their borrowers are scamming the system, and the lenders are loosing their spirit of lending...don't blame them.

    So happy to have invited you. Welcome to our Team. May you get as much pleasure lending on Zidisha as you have had with Kiva.

    I'm not on this team but I see that several of you are from Kiva. You are cordially invited to join Kiva-on-Zidisha if you are not yet on it. We especially help new Zidisha members from Kiva to understand how Zidisha works, but also have good discussions, are doing some volunteer translating, and posting loans that might need a little push.

      Thanks for the invite. All the members on this team already belong to Kiva on Zidisha...got to keep those numbers up also 8-) You are cordially invited to join our Group too. Would love to have your numbers added. Thanks for your participation in both organizations. -Tom

      Thanks a lot Jalene! Glad to be part of the group. I, like Tom, am also on Kiva. I really like Zidisha's direct peer to peer lending model.
