Queen is 35 years old and married with four children. Her husband is a welder and he also supports the home.
To make a living, Queen sells poultry in one of the major markets in Benin City and has been in this business for five years. She loves this business because it is highly profitable.
Queen is requesting the loan of NGN 50,000 to purchase more poultry 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
