MAHUGNON AS est un groupement composé de vingt personnes qui vivent toutes dans le même quarter au Bénin. C’est la deuxième fois que ce groupe sollicite un crédit auprès de ALIDé, afin d’élever le niveau de leur activité et de mieux répondre aux exigences de leur clientèle. La représentante du groupe du nom de Annick est celle qui a la main levée sur la photo. Annick est née le 19 Mai 1972 au Bénin. Annick est mère de deux enfants, tous scolarisés et qui vivent ensemble avec elle. Annick ne vit plus avec son mari. Annick supporte seule les charges de ses enfants. Pour y arriver, Annick prépare de la nourriture (pâte de maïs accompagné de poissons frits) qu'elle vend à sa clientèle. Cette activité lui génère des revenus l'aidant à ainsi subvenir aux besoins de ses enfants. Annick mène cette activité depuis quinze ans et s'approvisionne au Bénin. Ce crédit permettra certainement à Annick et à son groupe de rehausser leur activité et d'accroître leur chiffre d'affaire et leur revenu.

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.
