Mrs. Mercy D. is married with 7 children. She is 42years of old and hails from Obulosho in Ogun State,Nigeria. She sells drinks and foodstuffs and has been in this business for the past 22 years. Mercy needs a loan of $875 to enable her to buy more foodstuffs and drinks for sale.
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
