Afusat is 38 years old, married with 4 children; they all live in Ibadan town in Oyo State, Nigeria. She sells medicine; she has been in this business for over 8 years and with LAPO Microfinance for the past 2 years.
Afusat 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.
Afusat would like to get a loan to purchase additional medicine and re-supply her inventory. She says thanks to all Kiva lenders for their support of her business.
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
