Akouavi Louïse was born on the 21st of June, 1961 in Benin. Louïse is married and the mother of 6 children, whom she cares for. Louïse sells charcoal. But Louïse purchases the charcoal on credit and repays the supplier after she completes her own sales. Louïse does not want to purchase the charcoal on credit; she would like to go to the source to purchase it, in order to increase her profits. This is why Louïse is requesting a loan from Alidé.
Akouavi Louïse est née le 21 Juin 1961 au BENIN. Louïse est veuve et mère de 6 enfants, à sa charge. C’est du charbon de bois que Louïse vend. Mais Louïse achète le charbon à crédit et rembourse son fournisseur après avoir fini de vendre. Louïse ne veut plus acheter de charbon à crédit, mais aller à la source en acheter afin de faire plus de profit. C’est pourquoi Louïse sollicite le crédit d’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.
