Ayobami is 35 old, married, and has 4 children. She lives in Ibadan town, in Oyo state, Nigeria. She sells medicine and she has been in this business for the past 10 years. Ayobami is a focused, hard worker. She puts in long hours trying to keep her businesses sustainable. One of her greatest joys is the one-on-one interaction she is able to have with her customers. She is requesting for the loan amount of NGN50,000 to purchase more medicine to sell. She says thanks to you 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
