Patricial has a grocery stall at the front of her house where she sells groceries at retail prices to her customers in Asaba, Delta State. Her greatest joy is the one-on-one interaction that she has with her customers. She has been in this business for a long time.
Patricial is married with four children and she is 48 years old. She hopes to own a supermarket in the future. She is requesting a loan of 100,000 NGN to purchase more groceries to sell. She says thanks to 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
