    We're excited to announce a fun new feature: We've gathered the photos each entrepreneur has posted in the Discussion tab, and created a slide show in the main photo area of the loan profile page.

    The loan profiles that have photo collections have small white arrows on the sides of the main photo. Click on the arrows to see pictures of the entrepreneur's business, family, and more!

    The slide show is fun, I've noticed that sometimes you get blank "images" where, I presume, there have been problems with uploading photos. It's a very small problem. Mostly, it's a nice change!

    I like this feature! I first noticed it when one of the borrowers from Senegal, who gives regular updates, posted pictures of the clothes she sells:

    Actually, Obeng Kwame Enock, it's the programmers (coders) who deserve the credit for this nice feature. ;)

    (The only issue I've noticed with the slideshows is that sometimes some photos get chopped off, depending on their original orientation. It seems that "landscape" photos appear fine, but the bottom portion of "portrait" photos get cut off. If you compare the individual photos shown on the Discussion page at the link below, versus those same photos in the slideshow that was created for him, you'll see, for example, that the stacks of motorbike tires he's selling are fully visible only in the individual photos posted on the Discussion page, but not in the slideshow at the top of the page. It would be nice to be able to see the entire photo of each photo in the slideshow. Maybe the programmers can make that possible, sometime?

    Actually this was the brilliant idea because it enables us to upload as many photos as possible,am not aware if intially no one could upload many photos as such as when i joined it was already i would say i came in when all was good including the membership fee when it was being deducted from the first loan,,:)

    I am very much conversant with the slides,they embrace the culture of business or venture into which lenders are involved in.Nice Idea.
