Bola is 44 years old and is married with 4 children. She sells frozen foods and started this business in 2002. She and her family live in Lagos State, Nigeria.
Bola opens her shop at 8:00am and closes by 6:00pm daily. She needs the loan amount of $425 to buy more frozen foods to sell. She says thank you to all Kiva lenders for their kind hearts.
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
