In this Group: Honorine, Véronique, Christine, Assiba
The Finagnon Misséssinto group consists of 4 long-standing friends who live in the same neighbourhood of Calavi, on the outskirts of Cotonou, Benin's largest city. This is their second loan with ALIDE. They have agreed to support each other in business and through loan repayments.

Honorine (with her hand raised in the photo) is 35 years old and lives with her husband Ludovic and their three children, all of whom are in education. For the past 10 years Honorine has been selling cosmetics from a stall outside her home. This loan will enable her to purchase perfumes from Tokpa, Benin's largest market. Her aim in the long term is to grow her business. Her strongest point as an entrepreneur is her management ability.

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.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
