Anagonou A. was born in 1963 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. Since her birth, she's been living in Cadjèhoun, in Cotonou. She's married to Norbert ALLIMENTIN, a mason, and she's the mother of two school-attending children. Anagonou has another child to support, in addition to her own. The couple lives together in Cadjèhoun with their children. Anagonou helps her husband with the family expenses. In order to do so, she's been selling, for about twelve years, plant roots (traditional medicine) as well as "cuire dents" (wooden chewing sticks) as an ambulant saleswoman. She gets her supplies in Dantokpa, an international market in Benin. She already benefited from two loans from Kiva's partner, Alidé, and repaid them without problems. In order to bolster her working capital and expand her business, she's seeking her third loan from Alidé.
A. Anagonou est née en 1963 à Cotonou, capitale économique du Bénin. Anagonou vit à Cadjèhoun, à Cotonou depuis sa naissance. Mariée à ALLIMENTIN Norbert un maçon, Anagonou est mère de deux enfants, tous scolarisés. Anagonou a un autre enfant à charge, en plus de ses deux enfants. Le couple vit ensemble à Cadjèhoun, avec leurs enfants. Anagonou vient en aide à son mari dans les charges de la famille. Pour y parvenir, Anagonou vend depuis une douzaine d’année, des racines de plantes (médicaments traditionnels) et également des cuire dents de façon ambulante. C’est à Dantokpa, marché international du Bénin, que Anagonou s’approvisionne. Anagonou a obtenu déjà deux crédits à ALIDé et les a bien remboursés. C’est dans l’optique d’augmenter son fonds de roulement et d’agrandir son activité que Anagonou sollicite un troisième crédit auprès de 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.
