"_I am not sure, i have seen MFI's forcing people to save when getting a loan, the result may seem good, but the result is that they get litle interest on savings, and thus increasing the cost of the loan."

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

Sverre,

Agree. I think the longer duration loan is probably turning away a few people. The Next MFI we sign up will have a shorter duration loan - 12 months.

I think we also need some god media coverage to increase believability and increase conversions.

Thanks for the welcomes - I have read thru most of the threads and see a very engaged and passionate band of supporters - kudos to UP and all of you to keep this organization going

Thanks for the welcome. Nice to see a few other Kiva refugees on this site. I'm also recruiting my daughter to switch from Kiva.
Cheers
Colin

Hi Sverre,

Here is the link to the radio interview given by Ashok: http://www.rcinet.ca/rci/console/index.asp?langue=EN&IDExtraits=976816

You will find the full interview after 36 minutes into the program.

Hi Sverre

This should be even more exciting than Kiva! I was a relatively late arrival on Kiva (~Dec '08), while here we can see how UP grows from a very embryonic stage. I hope it will turn out all right!

The refugees find each other again! Nice to see all the friends. Looks like this site can really use our help in growing.....but hell we're the world's leading idealists, right?

Hi Sverre

Good to see you on this site. You also put a lot of heart into Kiva. Look forward to seeing how UP develops.

Welcome Sverre.

I think we may have ended up here for similar reasons. I am happy to belong here as I think it better fits my idea of micro-lending.
