Maureen loves clothes and that is why she sells used clothes to make a living in Sapele, Delta state. She loves this business because she has the opportunity to interact with her customers. She hopes for a loan amount of NGN 50,000 to purchase more used clothes to sell. She hopes to own a boutique in the future. She has 3 children and she is happy that they are excelling in school. Her husband is a mechanic and he also supports the home. She is a friendly woman and she uses her friendly skills to attract more customers to her business. She duly 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
