Born in 1971, Victoire is married to Joseph, a baker. The spouses have four dependent children, all in school. Victoire lives with her husband and children. Victoire and her husband jointly provide for household needs. For about seven years, Victoire has been selling fruits as a street vendor. She stocks up at a market in the south of Benin. This business activity brings her an income allowing her to cover various family needs. With the view of expanding her business further and increasing her revenues, Victoire is seeking a fourth loan from ALIDe. Her first three loans have been duly repaid.
Née en 1971, Victoire est mariée à Joseph un boulanger. Le couple à quatre enfants, tous scolarisés et à charge. Victoire vit avec son mari et ses enfants. Victoire assure avec son mari les différentes charges de la maison. Depuis sept ans environs, Victoire vend des fruits de façon ambulante. Victoire s’approvisionne dans un marché du Sud du Bénin. Cette activité lui génère des revenus l’aidant à couvrir les diverses charges de sa famille. Dans l’optique de rehausser davantage le niveau de son activité et d’accroître son profit, Victoire sollicite un quatrième crédit auprès de ALIDé. Les trois premiers crédits dont Victoire avait bénéficié ont été bien remboursés.
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.
