Victoire Ablawa, the group’s representative, has her hand raised in the photo. She was born in a city of Benin in September 1964. Victoire has three children, all of whom have received formal schooling. Two of the children are still in her care. Victoire herself quit school at the secondary level.

For the past four years, Victoire has been preparing and selling food (a dish of rice & bean, some bread) around her neighborhood in order to support herself and provide for her children. She also sells mobile phone recharge cards as an additional source of income. She gets her supplies in a city of Benin.

In an effort to meet the needs of her customers and increase her revenue, Victoire is seeking this new loan together with the other members of the DEMANDOVO STE RITA group.

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.
