Emiola is a happy, hard working woman. She is always happy when her customers come in to purchase medicines. She has been in this business for a long time. She sells daily from 7am to 7pm. She is itching for expansion in her business. She hopes for a loan of NGN 50,000 to purchase more medicines to sell.
She hopes to own a maternity home in the future. She is 35 years old and is married with 2 children. Her children attend school. To support the household, her husband sells electronics.
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
