  •  they seem to be changing (none)
    They were all gone when I looked, but then I looked again and some new ones were up. Perhaps they noticed an influx of new traffic from DKos and have been busy working on promoting investment opportunities from their pool of potentials? That'd be pretty cool if so. As 2004 showed, we do have a lot of weight to throw around for good causes...
    •  I just got an e-mail from Matt at Kiva (4.00)
      He seems amazed at the number of dKOS folks who are contributing and is "stressed out" trying to put up new businesses needing loans fast enough.

      •  good! (none)
        Of all the kinds of stress, having a lot of people signing up for your service all at once has to be one of the nicest. :-)

        Three cheers to Kiva for rising to the challenge! As I write this, there are now four businesses in the "in need" section:

        • Mot Mot - has $425 of $500 needed
        • Kuro Chiki Hotel - has $500 of $500 needed
        • Fur Ber Fish - has $150 of $300 needed
        • Awasi Goat Keepers - has $350 of $500 needed

        I'm pretty sure all of them were added within the last eight hours or so, after this diary hit the recommended list. They weren't there when I looked earlier.
        •  Hurray! (none)
          My restaurant lady has gone through! I wanted to donate to the goat people as well, because I love goats, but it looks like everyone has been covered!

          Maybe the diary could be updated with links to some of the other businesses like this that folks have posted about. And there's always Heifer!
