In this Group: Kpèdétin , Rébécca, Louise
JESULOME 1 is a group of three persons whose members are friends residing in the same district. The group's representative, Kpèdétin (whose hand is raised in the photo) is 37 years old and married to a laundryman named Mathieu. The couple has six children, of whom some are in school. All of the children are in their care.

Kpèdétin did not attend school very much. She lives together with her children and husband. The couple jointly ensures that the different household expenses are covered. For ten years, Kpèdétin has been selling "boulles de pâtes" (made from cassava starch) and bread out of her home. She gets her supplies from the region.

This is the first time that Kpèdétin and the other members of the group JESULOME 1 have requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of bolstering their working capital and their work, as well as responding further to the demands of their customers.

Additional Information

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.
