O. Christiana Janeffer is 49 years old married with eight children. She lives in Uromi, Edo State, Nigeria. She owns a patent store for the sale of medicine. She is a LAPO client. She sells this medicine to people in her community. She needs the loan amount of $875 to buy more medicine for sale to her customers. This will help her to serve her customers better. She says thank you to all who made 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
