Christiana is 43 years old and married with a child. Her child is 15 years old. Her husband is an engineer. He also supports the home. She lives in Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria. She sells medicines to make a living. She loves this business because of the one-on-one interaction that she has with her customers. She is requesting a loan of NGN 100,000 to purchase more medicines to sell. She says thank you 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
