Adèle Agossi
Mrs. Adele Agossi A., a native of Benin, was born around 1979 in the town of Agbalilame, in the department of Oueme. Married to Christian Kpatinvoh, welder by training, she is mother of two children, Nicole and Charles, who are still in her care. She is a traveling sales person who retails cloth, women's bags, and shoes. In order to secure client loyalty, she has received orders but she lacks the funds to purchase them. To meet the needs of her client base she is asking for her third loan.

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.
