D. Honorine was born in 1974 and is married to VLAFONOU Martin, a driver.  The couple still have no children.  Martin in the only one covering family expenses.  For just a year now, Honorine and her husband have been living in the district of Tonato in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. 

Honorine stopped attending class in primary school.  She has been selling food (rice, beans) for a year out of her parents' home in Cotonou. She had an ALIDé loan before, which she had repaid.  She would like to diversify her business and to enlarge it further.  This is why she's requesting a second ALIDé 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.
