Kazeem is married and he is 32 years old. He is blessed with a child who gives him joy as a father. He lives in Oyo state, Nigeria. He sells medicines at retail prices to his customers. He has been in this business for 10 years and he uses his experience in business to attract and retain more customers. He is requesting a loan amount of 50,000 Nigerian naira to purchase more medicines to sell. He says thanks to all Kiva lenders for their assistance.
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
