Agath lives with her children and she is the sole breadwinner of the family. Agathe is a seamstress but she also sells various items (candies, cookies, boxes of milk, sardines, tomatoes, sugar, pastas, laundry detergents, dish soaps, beauty bars, batteries, candles etc.). Agatha purchases her inventory in Cotonou, the financial capital of Benin, and she resells them in the Djegan Daho district of Porto-Novo, capital city of Benin. Agathe has had two previous loans with Alide (Kiva Field Partner) to benefit her business. Agathe has never had problems repaying her loans, and so she requests a new loan to improve her seamstress business.
About AlidéAlidé 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.
