Our social media campaign reaches 1000 participants

Paul Buchheit, the creator of Gmail, announced last week that he is partnering with Zidisha to finance up to $100,000 worth of loans for our member entrepreneurs.  The funds are being donated in amounts of $10 for every share, tweet or retweet linking to our website and using the #zidisha hashtag.  The majority of the participants learned of the campaign at Hacker News.

Today, our campaign surpassed 1000 participants, raising over $10,000 for new loans in Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Guinea, Indonesia, Kenya, Niger, Senegal and Zambia.  Record numbers of visitors to our website stayed to become lenders, finding their own entrepreneurs to connect with and support.
