Joy Idunmwonyi is 32 years old and is married with a child. She sells foodstuffs and fruits like pears and oranges. The demand for her fruits and foodstuffs is high and she would like to retain her customers by meeting their demands. She requests a loan amount of $875 to buy more foodstuffs and fruits to sell. She thanks Kiva lenders.
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
