Betty
Betty O., 36 years old and married with five children, lives in Benin City, Nigeria with her family. In 1992, after a three-year training period, she opened a patent store where she sells medicine and treats minor injuries and illnesses in her community.



Betty has been building her credit with LAPO for two years and hopes for a $425 loan from Kiva lenders to buy more medicine to help her better treat the sick and injured in her community as well as meet the expenses of her family. She thanks you for any assistance you can provide her.

Additional Information

Important Information

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
