Nadine Ayaba
Born on February 3, 1977 in Ouidah, a historic town of Benin, Nadine Ayaba Q. is married to Martin GOULODE, a tire repairman. The couple has two children who both attend school. About three years ago the family settled in the Sènadé district of Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin.

Nadine helps her husband and provides with him for the family expenses thanks to the income generated by her business. Nadine did not attend school. Nadine has been selling for a dozen years frozen food products (meat, fish, etc.) and various other products (canned tomatoes and sardines, milk, pasta, etc.) at Dantokpa, Benin’s international market place. Nadine gets her supplies from CDPA and CAJAF COMMON (two companies that sell frozen food products in Cotonou).

Nadine has been running this business for a dozen years. It is the first time that Nadine requests a loan from ALIDé in order to strengthen her activity and better satisfy customer demand.

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.
