Finanfa Group
In this Group: Rosaline, Léontine
The group FINANFA comprises two persons who live together. The group's representative, Rosaline, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 30 years old and married to a man named Dohou. The couple have two children, of whom one is in school; both are in their care. The couple live together and jointly ensure that the different household expenses are covered.

Rosaline did not attend school. For twenty years, she has had a business selling trays of eggs and charcoal out of her home. This enables her to respond to family needs without much difficulty. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Concerned about responding better to the requirements of her customers, Rosaline would like to purchase trays of eggs and some charcoal to bolster her business. To do so, she and the other members of the group FINANFA are requesting an initial loan from ALIDé. The previous loans were indeed paid back.

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.
