Chizoron sells foodstuffs in Lagos State, Nigeria. She is determined to excel in her business and family life. She is 32 years old and married, with 2 children. Her husband is very supportive of her business, and her children attend a private primary school. She is seeking a loan of N120,000 to purchase more foodstuffs to sell. She thanks all 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
