Modupe A. lives in Ojodu, Lagos State, Nigeria. She is 42-years-old and is married with three children. Modupe sells food staples; yams, rice, garri and plantain. She has been in this business since 1996.
Modupe is requesting the loan to buy more food staples for resale. She expresses her gratitude to all that make this loan possible.
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
