With this she meets her family’s needs, including feeding, clothing and giving sound education to her children. Deborah has also saved lives through this means of rendering medical care to the sick.
Deborah hopes to improve on her service delivery to patients and buy more drugs to sell. She is requesting a loan of NGN 80,000 to purchase more drugs to sell.
Deborah is 48 years old, is married with six children, and lives in Lagos State, Nigeria. Her husband work as a civil servant in Lagos and they are doing well. She thanks Kiva for this wonderful initiative.
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
