Sandra is 39 years old and married with 5 children. She sells drinks at wholesale and retail to her customers. She has been in this business for a long time. The demands for her drinks are high. She needs the loan amount of N70,000 to purchase more provisions and drinks to sell. She says thanks 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
