The family has been living in Akossavié Hevié (not far from Cotonou, Benin's economic capital) for the past three years. The couple shares the support for the family. Yvette has not attended school.
For approximately two years, she has been selling corn and beans at the Cococodji market, a few kilometers from Cotonou, and also from her home. Yvette gets her supplies from Adja in the Mono province (Benin). This is the first time she has applied for a loan with ALIDé, with the aim of reinforcing her activity and becoming more responsive to her customer's requests.
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.
