So the educated guess was correct, and Kiva launched loans to entrepreneurs in the US this morning.

I couldn't resist this loan, cause I do like board games, and they are in San Francisco, and one of the guys works with people with disabilities and they are veterans, and yeah, anyway, it's a long term, but nice loan.

Erik and Shane seem an unlikely pair to run a board game shop. Shane works as a behavioral specialist for people with disabilities at a local non-profit while Erik is a veteran of the Iraq War with a background in sales. But they share a love of board games, and opened Just Awesome to provide the community with a family-friendly game store. While serving in the Air Force, Erik learned a game from a young Iraqi which he developed into Just Awesome! He donates all of the proceeds from this game to Operation Iraqi Children. Just Awesome! will also pay to ship any board games to American troops serving overseas.

With a thoughtful business plan and a passion for their product, Shane and Erik are new entrepreneurs poised for success. They will use their $7,500 loan for advertising and inventory.

Honestly i didn't think I would want to make a loan in the US when they became available, but sometimes you just gotta go with the flow...
