Mathias
Mathias is 31 years old and lives in Benin. He is married to a clothier named Babine. Mathias left school at the primary grade level. The couple has two children, one of whom is in school. Both children are in their care. The couple jointly ensure that the various household expenses are covered.

To help with the diverse needs of the family, Mathias has been working in the photography trade in his region. Thanks to the income this business generates, he is helping to cover the different family expenses.

To satisfy the needs of his burgeoning customer base, Mathias would like to do better at equipping his workshop by acquiring some film and other necessary items for his business to operate properly. To do so, Mathias is requesting a loan from ALIDé for a second time. The loan previously received by Mathias was indeed repaid.

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.
