Miwononvi - Vedoko Group
In this Group: Louise, Justine, Matilde
The MIWONONVI - VEDOKO group consists of three people who conduct their sales activities at the same market in Benin. This is the group’s third time seeking financial assistance from ALIDé to bolster their activities.

Louise, the group’s representative, is seen in the photo with her hand raised. She was born in Benin on April 28, 1975. Louise is married to a man named Djamal. The couple have four children, two of them still in their care. All their children have received formal schooling.

Louise lives with her husband and their children. The couple handle the various household responsibilities together. To that end, Louise has been selling rice and soap through the distribution system for the past two years. She gets her stock at one of Benin’s markets.

In order to meet the needs of her customers and increase her profits and revenue, Louise is seeking this third loan together with the other members of the MIWONONVI - VEDOKO group. All previous loans were correctly repaid.

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.
