The clothing and jewelry business has been a profitable trade for Flora. With this business, she is able to help her husband with the family upkeep.
Flora is 45 years old and has four children. One of her greatest joys is the one-on-one interaction she is able to have with her customers. She lives in Lagos.
She is requesting a loan of 140,000 Nigerian naira to purchase more clothes and jewelry to sell. She thanks you.
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
