Alice is a businesswoman. She has a piggery where she rears pigs for commercial purposes. She loves this business because of the opportunity to interact with her customers. She has been in this business for a long time. She lives in Oyo State, Nigeria. She is married with 6 children and she is 55 years old. She is requesting the loan amount of N50,000 to purchase more feed to boost her business. She says thanks to all Kiva lenders for their support.
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
