This important club fund raising initiative needs your help! We currently generate close to $19,000 per year (less expenses) from our “Canadian Flag Program”. Your ideas about how to retain current clients and grow the business would be welcomed.
If all our “able bodied” members were to generate or continue to maintain a small manageable customer base close to home, it would enable us to continue this program. Existing large customer client routes also need to be maintained as best we can and your help would be appreciated for these accounts.
Maintenance of existing physical inventory is ongoing and new flags, poles & holders have been ordered. A reasonably accurate list of current clients has been produced. Your thoughts & offers of assistance, where needed, can be communicated via e-mail to our chairperson Dennis. email: email@example.com He is looking forward to hearing from you soon.
The Heartland Oklahoma Team (H.O.T.) is a local-area Kiva team of 340 members, with total lending near $900,000. Today H.O.T. reached an impressive and fairly rare Kiva benchmark of 100 loans per member!
There are some big lending teams on Kiva but the size of the teams and their impact can be deceiving, browsing through Kiva's stats the other day I was impressed to see some of the milestones some lending teams have achieved, teams like Paying It Forward with 60.1 loans per member, Wind Power Now with 30.1 per member, Team Australia with 30.4 per member and even Team Canada with 7500 members registering 22.1 loans per member.
The team that is disappointing is HP, with vastly more members than any other team (121,000!), but still only 1.6 loans per member. Almost all of the loans were given by the company, and it seems very few employees have carried on the idea, what a missed opportunity.
So I am thrilled with our little 21 member team that currently has made 21 loans per member, tiny but mighty, keep up the great work.
We are down to the last 30 prizes for the Wheel of Fortune. Wine, $100. Bills and Dozen Roses Coupons are plentiful.
If you have something that would look better in someone else's home, donate it for possible inclussion as a Wheel of Fortune Prize!
Just when you thought you'd seen everything!

Our Rotary club's Kiva team continues to move our loan portfolio ahead. To date we have made 162 loans and to date we have 32 loans that have been successfully paid back.
The average lender on Kiva has an outstanding loan portfolio of just $38.30 while we have an outstanding loan portfolio of $1942.33 the average lender on Kiva has a delinquency rate of 5.77% while we have a delinquency rate of just 2.05% and the average lender on Kiva experiences a default rate of 1.11% while we have a default rate of 0.00%.
Our Kiva lending team now consists of 21 individual Kiva lenders and one other Rotary club as well as the J. Percy Page Interactors, as well some team members are members of our Rotary club, some are members of other Rotary clubs and some are not Rotarians at all, this small group of committed lenders has now cumulatively made 448 loans totaling $12,400.
The ongoing good work by everyone involved in this positive, immediate solution helps us connect one on one with real people around the world.
Keep up the great work!

With the number of members in this club either owning or operating a business, we are getting a very poor interest in this nice little generator of funds for the club.
Are the rates too steep? I don't think so, but if you do, please let us know.
If you have any bright ideas on how to promote this little initiative, please speak up.
