Duke sells medicines and groceries in Agbor Delta State. With these combined businesses, he hopes to meet the demand of his customers. He is married with 3 children; his wife is a petty trader. Duke is very happy with his business because of the one-on-one interaction that he has with his customers. He is very honest and hard-working. He requests the loan amount of NGN 100,000 to purchase more medicines and groceries to sell. He 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
