Olumide is 32 years old and married with a child. Her child is 14 years old and he attends school.
She sells rechargeable phones and accessories at retail prices to her customers to earn a living. She sells for long hours to enable her support her husband. She loves this business because of the one-on-one interaction that she has with her customers.
She hopes for a loan amount of NGN 70,000 to purchase more rechargeable phones and accessories to sell. 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
