Béatrice
D. Béatrice was born in 1973 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin, and lives in Agbodjèdo, a district of Cotonou.  She is married to HOUNKPEVI and is the mother of three children, who have all attended school.  She no longer has anyone to support.  She lives together with her husband and children. 

Béatrice backs up her husband regarding family expenses.  So, to take part in covering family expenses, she sells cloth, which is purchased from Dantokpa, the international market of Benin, where she also sells items from place to place and by the distribution system.  She did not attend school but has been operating this business for almost seven years. 

As a loyal ALIDé client, Béatrice has already had two loans, which have both been repaid. She would like to bolster her business to satisfy the diverse needs of her customers.  This is why she would like to obtain a third loan from ALIDé.

Additional Information

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.
