Juliette D. was born on May 18, 1967, in Mono. She's unmarried but has two school-attending children. For two years, she's been living alone in Agla in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. To provide for herself, Juliette sells shoes and second hand clothing in her neighborhood. She gets her supplies in Dantokpa, an international marketplace in Benin, as well as in Lomé, Togo.

Juliette has been running this business for five years, and already obtained four loans from Kiva's partner, ALIDé. All loans were repaid without problems. She would like to bolster her business and increase her clientele and, consequently, her revenue. This is why she's seeking another 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.
