Favour is 45 years old and married with 5 children. She sells fruits and yams. The demand for her fruits is high and she hopes to meet this demand of her customers. Her greatest joy is the one-on-one interaction that she has with her customers. She is requesting a loan to purchase more fruits 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
