Endurance is 35 years old and married with five children. She sells utensils, such as cooking pots, plates and spoons, to make a living in her community in Warri, Delta State. She is determined, through her business, to lift her family above poverty. She is requesting a loan amount of 70,000 NGN to purchase more utensils to sell. She sends her 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
