On July 15, 2009 avid Kiva supporters from KivaFriends.org challenged each other to break a new record. They wanted to have as many people as possible associated with “KivaFriends.org” show up under their lender avatar (profile picture) on a single loan. They chose to loan to the Esperanza 2006 group from El Alto / La Paz, Bolivia working with Pro Mujer. They were hugely successful with 85 Kiva Friends lending to the group before it was fully funded. Their previous record involved 65 participants, so this was a vast improvement!
