Rachael E. sells clothes and provisions. She is married with 6 children. Rachael sells her clothes and provisions at home and in the market. She is determined to lift her family above poverty.
Rachael is requesting the loan amount of $450 to buy more provisions and clothes for sale. She says thank you to all who 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
