To earn a living, Blessing sells provisions - wholesale and retail - to her customers. She sells goods like toothpaste, soap, and detergents. The demands for her provisions are high.
Her children assist her in her business when they come home from school each day.
Blessing is requesting a loan of N100,000 so she can purchase more provisions to sell. She says thank you to all Kiva lenders.
Important InformationThe 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
