Hello Team New Englanders! Every Monday (or so) we will assess the team's overall impact and our ranking in relation to the rest of the Kiva community. As of 12 AM on 07/20/09 this is how things stand:
Members: 77 - - - Ranking: 113 of 7,597
Loans: 333 - - - Ranking: 125 of 7,597
Money: $9675 - - - Ranking: 144 of 7597
It's been a while since I've last checked in, but fortunately it has not prevented the team from moving forward and further expanding its roster. The team's ranking have remained steady within each of the measured categories and continues to place within the top 2% for each. This is a reflection of the dedication each member brings to the team to help others better their lives. A couple of significant events are growing ever-closer on the horizon: $10,000 loaned & 100 members. Both will be landmark events for the team, but the real significance is those 300+ loans reflect the number dreams that are that much closer in reach. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer (now that is has finally arrived) and is well. Happy lending everyone!

|About us:||We are New Englanders, located in the northeast corner of the United States. We hail from towns dotted along the Green Mountains of Vermont and the sandy coastlines of the Bay and Ocean States. The White Mountains and wilderness of (the free state) New Hampshire and the Gold Coast of Connecticut we call our home. The dense forests of Maine lend us the Pine Tree emblem affixed upon our flag proudly uniting the region for hundreds of years and today our cause for empowering people around the world. We welcome anyone who wishes to join us!|
