Symplicia is the mother of four children, whom are all enrolled in school. For the past five years, Symplicia's work has primarily been the sale of wood charcoal by the bag and by the piece. Her work has already benefited from a first a loan from Alidé , and Symplicia has paid back that initial loan in full. Symplicia is happy with her first loan from Alidé and hopes to keep benefiting from their services in order to continue expanding her business. Therefore, Symplicia is asking for a second loan from Alidé in order to increase her stock of wood charcoal, which has become difficult to find and more costly during this rainy season.

About Alidé

Alidé is a Beninese NGO that works to reduce poverty by offering sustainable access to productive loans like this one in addition to savings, training sessions, and social work to low-income families.

Supporters of this loan should be aware that there is some risk of being repaid late. Because the Beninois Ministry of Finance has imposed restrictions on the amount of money Alidé can send to Kiva, the organization can only send monthly repayments in installments smaller than $13,000. This means that some Kiva lenders may receive their repayments late. However, Alidé remains a healthy institution in good standing with its creditors, and Kiva would like to continue working to support its clients. For more information, please refer to Alidé's partner profile page.
