Aderoju sells medicine for a living. She loves her business because of the opportunity it gives her to interact with her customers. She hopes to grow her business to become larger and more profitable. She is requesting a loan of N50,000 to purchase more medications to sell. Aderoju is 32 years old and married, with 2 children. Her children are still young and they attend school. Her husband also works to support their home.
Aderoju 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
