H. Agnès
Agnès was born on the 7th January 1965 in Benin. She is married to a primary school teacher called Pierre with whom she has five children who all attend school. She lives with her husband and children, and works with him to see to the family's needs. She never went to school and today sells prepared food (rice, beans) from a market in Benin. She sources her goods from one of Benin's markets, and the revenue from selling them helps her to see to her family's costs. In order to boost her business and grow her profit levels she is seeking a loan from ALIDé.

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.
