Priscilla sells clothes. She hopes to own a boutique in the future. She is 31 years-old and married with four children. Her husband is a commercial driver and he also supports the home. She is a hard working and faithful woman. Priscilla is requesting a loan of NGN 170,000 to purchase more clothes to sell. She is a Lift Above Poverty Organization (LAPO) client. LAPO is committed to improving lives in Africa, particularly in Nigeria. 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
