What else do I have to say than to say bravo to LAPO for supporting my business before now, says Mrs. Blessing A.. a 40 years old woman.
Hear more from Blessing: Initially I was afraid to borrow money but LAPO made it interesting for me to borrow. I need the above amount for my business expansion.
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
