G. Véronique
K. G. Véronique was born in 1974 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin.  Married to ANAGO Josia, a retailer, she is the mother of three children who are all in school.  For twelve years, she has been living in the Kpondéhou district in Cotonou with her husband and children.  She works in aid of her husband to meet family expenses. 

Véronique has not been to school.  That's why, for eleven years, she has been selling firewood at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin.  Her secondary business involves selling sauce condiments (tomatoes, onions, etc.)  She gets her supplies in Adja in Mono and in Ekpè, on the road to Porto-Novo (the administrative capital of Benin). 

Véronique is a previous ALIDé client who repays her loans.  With the aim of expanding her business further and growing her customer base, she's requesting a fifth loan from ALIDé.

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.
