Henriette did not attend school. She has been selling sauce condiments and staple foods (rice, cassava flour, etc.) out of her home. She purchases her supplies at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin.

She has already had two loans from ALIDé that have both been repaid. She would like to expand her business and to respond better to customer demand. Later on, Henriette has the ambition to open a store for selling her products.

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.
