Angèle G. was born in 1975 in Comé, in the south of Benin, and is married to Edgard Awo, a welder. Angèle is a mother of 2 schooled children, and has been living in Abomey Calavi, in the south of Benin, for 3 years now. Her revenues made from the sale of electrical supplies (light bulbs, power bars, light switches, etc.), school supplies and fabrics, allowed Angèle to contribute to her family's expenditures. Angèle purchases her products in Dantokpa, a large international market in Benin, as well as in Lomé (in Benin's neighboring country of Togo); and resells them in Cocotomey, in Cotonou. Angèle has fifteen years of experience in this domain. To continue developing her current business, and to later create a sales company of electrical supplies, Angèle is requesting a loan with Alidé.

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.
