Bukky sells electrical goods to make a living. She has been in this business for three years. She is 31 years old and married with two children. She is a hard working woman and she is determined to lift her business high above poverty. She sells her electrical goods daily from 8am-6:30pm. She hopes for a loan of N170,000 to purchase more electrical goods to sell. She says thanks to all Kiva lenders.
The Kiva Field Partner in Nigeria who administers this loan is called the Lift Above Poverty Organization (LAPO). Kiva’s Staff wants to call your attention to the fact that LAPO is the subject of controversy. While all Kiva Field Partners charge an interest rate on loans to sustainably operate, LAPO’s interest rates (see their “Portfolio Yield”) and profitability (see their “Return on Assets”) are amongst the highest on Kiva. Kiva’s Staff encourages you to learn more about this Nigerian Field Partner before making this loan. http://www.kiva.org/partners/20
