Aina sells clothes, shoes and bags in her shop at retail prices to her customers. She has been in this business for the past two years. She hopes to own a world class boutique in the future.
Aina is single and without children. She hopes to get married soon. She is 32 years old.
Aina hopes for a loan of NGN 150,000 to purchase more clothes and bags to sell. She has a good relationship with LAPO (Lift Above Poverty Organization) which is committed to improving lives in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa. Aina 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
