Oluwafemi is a friendly and a hard-working woman. She has a good relationship with LAPO (Lift Above Poverty Organization). LAPO is committed to improving lives in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa.
Oluwafemi sells medicines and groceries at retail prices in Ibadan. She hopes to own a maternity home in the future. She hopes for the loan amount of NGN 100,000 to purchase more medicines to sell. She is 35 years old and married with 3 children. Her children attend school and this gives her joy. Her husband sells beef to support their home. 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
