Our dollar balance is lower than last month because of two factors: (1) Our Kiva balance is no longer $475 (our initial investment) but $130. That is because, every time a micro-loan is made, a small service fee is subtracted, which gradually erodes the value of the account over time, and some loans are not repaid. The Kiva account automatically makes new micro-loans when earlier loans are repaid. (2) I transferred $1000 out of Second Life and into a paypal account set up for Byk. In the process I paid a $50 fee, so only $950 ended up in paypal. I have transmitted all the login information needed to control the finances of the congregation to Etaoin and Zyzzy.
