Gbetodjin Enonmon Group
In this Group: Adjoavi, I. Béatrice, A. Alice C.
GBETODJIN ENONMON is a group composed of three persons, including the president (with her finger raised in the photo) by the name of Adjoavi. The group members are friends, and they live together in the same area in Sainte Rita, in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. Born on February 27, 1947 in Cotonou, Adjoavi has lived in the Sainte Rita district for two years. She is a widow with four children, who have all had schooling. Two of the children are still in her care. She therefore lives alone with her children and covers their various expenses by herself.

For about four years, Adjoavi has been doing commerce in corn and rice at her house. Concurrently, she sells cassava flour and some canned foods. This business brings in the revenues that help her to meet the different needs of her children. She gets her supplies at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin, and in the town of Savalou, in central Benin. This is the second time that she has requested financing from ALIDé in order to expand her business and increase her turnover, as well as her revenues.

GBETODJIN ENONMON est un groupe constitué de trois personnes et dont la présidente (dont le doigt est levé sur la photo) est nommée Adjoavi. Les membres du groupe sont des amies et vivent ensemble dans la même zone à Sainte Rita à Cotonou (capitale économique du Bénin). Née le 27 Février en 1947 à Cotonou, Adjoavi habite le quartier Sainte Rita depuis deux ans. C’est une veuve ayant quatre enfants, tous scolarisés, dont deux sont encore à sa charge. Adjoavi vit donc seule avec ses enfants et supporte seule leurs différentes charges. Il y a quatre ans environs que Adjoavi fait le commerce de maïs et du riz à son domicile. Parallèlement, Adjoavi vend de la farine de manioc et des conserves. Cette activité lui procure des revenus l’aidant à assurer les différents besoins de ses enfants. Adjoavi se ravitaille à Dantokpa, marché international du Bénin et à Savalou dans le centre du Bénin. C'est la deuxième fois que Adjoavi sollicite un financement auprès de ALIDé, afin d'agrandir son activité et d'accroître son chiffre d'affaire et son revenu.

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.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
