Kudirat is 33 years old. She is married with two children who are 8 and 4 years old and they are both doing well in school. She lives in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. Her husband sells tires and they both contribute to supporting the family.
Kudirat puts in long hours trying to keep her businesses sustainable. One of her greatest joys is the one-on-one interaction she is able to have with her customers. She is requesting the loan of N50,000 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
