Bisi sells drinks at retail prices to her customers. She loves this drink business because of the one-on-one interaction that she has with her customers. She hopes to be a major drink distributor in the future. She hopes for a loan of 150,000 Nigerian naira to purchase more drinks to sell.
She is 42 years old and married with three children. Her children are doing well in their school. She is also happy because her children attend school. She hopes to see her business grow bigger and stronger. 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
