Bose, age 34, lives in Warri, Delta State, Nigeria. She is a client of LAPO (Lift Above Poverty Organization), which is committed to improving lives in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa. She runs a grocery store where she sells groceries at retail prices to her customers. She loves this business because of the one-on-one interaction that she has with her customers, and she hopes someday to own a supermarket. She is married and has two children.

Bose is requesting a loan in the amount of 100,000 NGN, which she will use to purchase more groceries to sell. She sends her thanks to all Kiva lenders.

Important Information

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.
