Patience is 42 years old and married with 6 children. She is a tailor and she also sells curtains and carpets. She is a hard-working woman and she is very diligent in her business. The demand for her goods is high, and she hopes to meet the demands of her customers. She hopes for a loan amounting to N70,000 to purchase more curtains and carpets 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
