Small technical glitch

Happy New Year to all at United Prosperity!!!Let's hope that 2014 will see a little less poverty in the world than 2013!I just noted a minor technical glitch - when sorting guarantees by "Funds Remaining & Champion" and then clicking on a page other than the first page that comes up, the following error message comes up:We're sorry, but something went wrong.See More

"Hi Andreas, Each borrower would get funded either with a loan or a loan guarantee. This would typically depend on the kind of relationship we have with the microfinance partner. Thus currently with Berendina in Sri Lanka, we would have a loan…"

Every Guarantee - Every Time

Members of this Group will simply try really hard to contribute to EVERY guarantee posted on the United Prosperity website. Very importantly, the size of each guarantee does not matter - only the "being there" does!See More

Loans fully repaid!

I just looked under the "Impact" tab of the UnitedProsperity.org website, and saw that a large number of early guarantees/loans have now been fully repaid, which is really good to see!!! While the issues affecting the microfiannce sector in India are out of the control of United Prosperity management, it is to the credit of the UP team that the re-paymetns are coming in, and it seems they are coming in very consistently, reflecting positively on…See More

Occupation
I work for the Dark Side - finance sector
About me
No - it's about them!

I am hooked onto the concept of microfinance, which allows people to help themselves.

I strongly believe that wealth must be shared to avoid conflict.

I also believe the desire to help others is coded into our DNA and that making a loan guarantee releases more endomorphins into your body than eating an entire bar of chocolate does.

Oh yes - almost forgot - I am Obama's No.1 fan. United Prosperity?!? YES WE CAN!

Hello,

Do you know if United Prosperity is still in business?  I have sent several emails and the emails are returned with the note that the mailbox is full. I have not been fully repaid and I'm wondering if other individuals are in the same situation. If you know anything, please contact me at cpracht@yahoo.com

Thanks,

Carl

Hi Andreas,

To get higher resolution photograph, here is what you need to do:

1. Choose the entrepreneur profile . e.g. http://www.unitedprosperity.org/us/entrepreneur/37

2. If you are using Internet explorer as a browser, move cursor over the image and right click on the image.

3. Click on the properties option.

4. Select and copy the address URL. It will be something like : http://lh6.ggpht.com/_-9uXd8rvJ1U/SpJwKC7n9nI/AAAAAAAABoE/kk-v8ahoGv0/PRAMILA%20DEVI%20%20101%20-%2000226.JPG?imgmax=400

5. Delete the part '?imgmax=400' and paste the rest of the URL on a browser window.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_-9uXd8rvJ1U/SpJwKC7n9nI/AAAAAAAABoE/kk-v8ahoGv0/PRAMILA%20DEVI%20%20101%20-%2000226.JPG

That is a high resolution image and you can save it to your PC.

Cheers

Bhalchander

Good to see so many Kiva refugees here. I realise that what is right for one person is not necessarily right for another. I have no problem with those who decided to stay with Kiva but it was no longer right for me and I'm happy to have now found UP. Let's keep helping those in need where we can and where we feel comfortable.

Feeling particularly relaxed tonight as I am sampling one of your country's finest exports - from the Barossa Valley.

It is a great site and I look forward to seeing it grow.

The site is growing already,
nice to se see some friends here!

Seems to be this is new Kiva baby,
and each of us can help much more here and have bigger impact / footprint by helping here with marketing and guranteeing to get the snowball rolling here, and to help by investing in countries where there is real poverty and where the impact in soiciety is greatest for money spend.
