In with the New Year & the New Rotary Members!
The Rotary Club of Edmonton Strathcona had a blue ribbon day on Tuesday January 20th , 2015 when they inducted 4 new members in their Rotary Club. District Governor Linda Robertson was in attendance and participated by reading the Rotary New Member Induction Charge. Rotary Club President Stephan Van Vuuren concluded the formal portion of the induction ceremony by asking his fellow Rotarians to give the new members their help and friendship to ensure their Rotary membership is useful and happy. The new members and their respective classifications and sponsors are :
|Director of Membership, Eric Germain generously donated to the Happy Bucks portion of the program to celebrate and recognize this great event, and encouraged Rotary Club members to continue to recruit new prospective members from their circles of friends, family and professional colleagues|
Dan Pallotta says the way we think about charity is dead wrong, that we need to let our charities flourish the same as we do new start up companies. Making charities focus on keeping their overhead low rather than on solving the needs in the community, the same needs that they were formed to address is counterproductive. Why should the successful head of a charity not be paid the same as the successful head of a new start up company, especially if the charity that person is guiding is making a direct positive impact?
Our Rotary club's Kiva team continues to move our loan portfolio ahead. To date we have made 143 loans and to date we have 21 loans that have been successfully paid back.
The average lender on Kiva has an outstanding loan portfolio of just $39.85 while we have a loan portfolio of $1962, the average lender on Kiva has a delinquency rate of 5.00% while we have a delinquency rate of just 1.61% and the average lender on Kiva experiences a default rate of 1.10% while we have a default rate of 0.00%.
Our Kive lending team now consists of 20 individual Kiva lenders, some 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 415 loans totaling $11,525.
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.
