Rali never went to school. To support her children, Rali has been selling kolas (local products), stove wicks, bottles and 'adindon', used locally to make stews, for some 10 years in the market of Ouando in Porto-Novo. Rali does her buying in Adjarra, a village situated not far from Porto-Novo.
She has been a client of ALIDé for a long time and has already received two loans that she has repaid correctly. Rali is requesting a third loan from ALIDé to grow her little business and her clientele so that she can better cater for the needs of her children.
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.
