"I believe if the loan of US$1,175 is given to me, I will be able to buy more goods for sale. Business is better right now as Christmas is around the corner. The Christmas period is a time people buy more lengths of cloth, shoes, and bags for the celebration. This will help me to improve my family's standard of living," says Mrs. Juliet O. who lives in Benin City.

Juliet is 38 years old, married with 4 children. She is a member of LAPO as a leader of her union and has been in this business since 1995.

Important Information

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.
