Sadia is 42 years old and married to a pastor. They are blessed with 2 lovely children. She is a hard-working woman and she is determined to lift her business and family above poverty. She sells groceries at retail prices to her customers to earn a living. She hopes to purchase groceries at wholesale prices in the future to enable her to give a discount to her customers. She is requesting the loan amount of 50,000 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
