Akouavi Solange
C. Akouavi Solange was born around 1971 in Pobè, in Plateau County. She is married to TOULASSI Clément, a chauffeur. She and Clément still do not have any children, but they support a child who is in school. The family lives in Womey, a district in the community of Abomey-Calavi, not far from Cotonou, the economic capital of the Republic of Benin. Solange’s husband is the one who ensures that family expenses are covered. This allows Solange to invest the revenues from her business to develop it further.

Basically, she sells staple foods (yam tubers, corn, millet, sorghum, beans, etc.) through the distribution system. Glazoué, one of the international markets of Benin for staple goods, is where she stocks up on these different goods.

Solange wants to bolster her working capital to be able to respond better to the demands of her growing customer base. And so, she’s requesting her first ALIDé loan to attain her goals.

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.
