Kate has sold provisions, palm oil and drinks for a number of years. Thirty years old and married with four children, she lives in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria. Kate is requesting the loan amount of N100000 to purchase more provisions, palm oil and drinks to sell. She thanks you for the loan support.
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
