Iyore O. is married with four children. She is 38 years old. She sells clothing--both wrappers and baby clothes. She is from Edo State, Nigeria, and has been in business since 2005. She needs a loan of $725 to buy more clothes to sell.
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
