Kiva has grown a widespread group of supporters, ranging from Kiva Fellows over company supporters to a lively community discussing at Kiva Friends or contributing at Kivapedia.
KivaTV is showing a mix of promotional, educational and informational video clips.
Kiva still maintains a low default rate, which currently is 0.2%. The 20 Kiva loans I myself have invested in are all repaying on time.
