The AYIDOKPO group consists of sixteen people who live in the same area and practice the same activity. This is their first time seeking financial assistance from ALIDé to bolster their activity.

The group’s representative is Veronique, seen in the photo with her hand raised. She was born in Benin in 1962. Veronique is a widow who lives alone with her children in Benin. She has four children, all of whom have received schooling. Two are still in her care.

To support herself and her children, Veronique started selling fresh tomatoes twenty years ago. As a secondary activity, she also sells palm oil in Benin, where she acquires her stock.

Veronica, together with the other group members, is seeking this first loan to achieve customer satisfaction and increase her profits.

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.
