Espérance is 48 years old and married to a surveyor named Athanase. The couple have four children. None of the children attend school, and none live with her. Espérance lives alone and provides for herself. To achieve this, she has sold various food items at a market in Benin for nine years. She gets her supplies in Benin. This is the second time Espérance is seeking a loan with ALIDÉ, with the goal of raising the level of her business and increasing her sales and income.
Espérance est âgée de 48 ans et est mariée à un topographe du nom de Athanase. Le couple a quatre enfants. Aucun des enfants n'est scolarisé et ne vit avec elle. Espérance vit seule et assure seule ses différentes charges. Pour y arriver, Espérance vend depuis neuf ans environs des produits vivriers dans un marché du Bénin. Espérance s'approvisionne au Bénin. C’est la deuxième fois que Espérance sollicite un crédit auprès de ALIDé, en vue d’élever le niveau de son activité et d’accroître son chiffre d’affaires et son revenu.
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.
