Deborah is married with a child and she is 30 years old. She is a friendly and hardworking woman who sells for long hours to support her home. Her husband also works to support their home.
Deborah sells foodstuffs at retail prices to her customers and is well-known in her community. She has a stall where she sells her foodstuffs and hopes to be a major foodstuffs distributor in the future. She is requesting a loan of N60,000 to purchase more foodstuffs to sell.
Deborah 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
