Pauline Menongbé and her husband support their family together. Pauline Menongbé has been selling cloth, coverlets, and costume jewelry on foot through the neighborhoods for 10 years. She has already received two loans from ALIDé, loans that she reimbursed apropriately. She is now requesting a third loan from ALIDé to be used to grow her 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.
