Cordellia is 35 years old and is married with three children. She lives in Benin City, where she sells drinks and table water. She learned the business from her uncle and started her own shop in 2006.
Cordellia says that her business is good but it takes a lot of work. She is open six days a week from 6 am to 6 pm. She does this so that she can afford her family's basic living expenses. Cordellia is asking for a loan of $425 to enable her to buy more drinks and table water to sell to her thirsty customers.
Important InformationThe 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
