Kiva Zip cold storage loan - almost funded thanks to Reid Hoffman

My Kiva Zip loan to build cold storage on the farm is almost funded.
I have $425.00 left with 7 days to go.    I have seen a big influx of lending due to the fact that Reid Hoffman, founder of Linkedin - opted to match every loan up to $300.00.   That caused a big jump in lending.  I have 93 lenders who have helped me get to this point, and I am very thankful.
Here a brief bio from google on Reid Hoffman.   Below that is a copy of my account page for the loan showing the updated total as of this morning.
