She helps her husband to provide for the family’s various expenses. She left school very early and then learned hairdressing. Augustine has been in this business for about fifteen years and runs her business at her home. In addition, she sells hair pieces. She gets her supplies in Cotonou, the economic capital of Bénin. This is the first time that Augustine has requested financial assistance from ALIDé, so that she can buy many hairpieces and make wigs that she will sell.

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.
