Becky sells foodstuffs, drinks and groceries at retail prices to her customers to make a living. She loves this business because of the opportunity to interact with customers.
She is 41 years old and married with five children. Her eldest child is 14 years old and her children attend school which makes her happy. She has been in this business for eight years. She hopes to grow her business. Becky is asking for a loan amount of 150,000 NGN to purchase more foodstuffs and drinks to sell. 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
