Doris F. sells provisions, drinks, and kitchen utensils in her shop, and she has been in this business for a long time. Doris is 41 years old and married with 3 children who are all attending school.
Doris does not have a kiosk, so she sells her provisions, drinks, and kitchen utensils in an open area. She needs a loan to build a kiosk where she can stock her goods and sell to her customers. Building a kiosk will allow her to store her goods securely overnight so that she doesn't have to pack her goods each night and take them home. Doris lives at Issashi, Lagos state, Nigeria. She says thank you to all that 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
