Blessing has a grocery stall where she sells groceries at retail prices to her customers. She is a friendly and hard working woman. She hopes to own a supermarket and a boutique in the future. She is 36 years old and married with seven children. She hopes for a loan in the amount of 80,000 NGN to purchase more groceries to sell. She says thank you 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
