The couple has three children, all of whom live in their care. Some of their children have received schooling. Odounyêmi Maqsoudath stopped her studies at the secondary school level. She lives with her husband and children. Odounyêmi Maqsoudath and Deen both provide for the various household needs.
In order to cover the various expenses, Odounyêmi Maqsoudath sells corn, charcoal, trays of eggs, and various other items in her neighborhood. She has been running this business for four years now. She stocks up in her region.
Odounyêmi Maqsoudath, along with the other members of the IFE group, is seeking a third loan from ALIDé to help her achieve her goal of satisfying her customers and increasing both her sales and revenue.

About AlidéAlidé 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.
