Born on 3 June 1971 in Porto-Novo, the administrative capital of Benin, Honoré has lived in the Abogomé area of Akpro-Missérété in the Ouémé department for about one year. He is married to Marguerite and has six children in his care, of whom four are his own. Some of the children are in school. The couple take care of the various household expenses together. Honoré did not attend school, but trained to be a driver. Along with this activity, he sells spare parts in Porto-Novo, which allows him to take care of himself and his family. He buys his goods in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. With the goal of raising the level of his business and better satisfying the demands of his clientele, Honoré is seeking his first loan through ALIDÉ (one of Kiva's field partners). In the future, Honoré hopes to significantly extend his business.

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.
