The DJROMAHUTON12 group consists of seven people who all live in the same neighborhood in Porto-Novo (administrative capital of Benin). The group’s representative is Josephine, seen in the photo with her hand raised. Josephine is married to David, a fisherman. The couple has six children, three of them still in their care. All have attended school. Josephine has lived in the district of Houinta, in Porto-Novo, all of her life, and this is where the family now resides. The couple handle together the various family responsibilities.

For the past 10 years or so, Josephine has been selling "akassa" (a local food made from corn starch) from her home. She also sells crabs that she buys at the Ouando market in Porto-Novo.

Josephine has previously obtained one loan from ALIDé, and has repaid it in full. In order to strengthen her business and better meet customer demand, she is seeking another loan. She hopes someday to buy a plot of land to live there with her children.

Additional Information

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.
