The Jesukpego-Zogbo group consists of three persons who reside in the same neighborhood. Kouèba Marguerite is the representative for the group, and is raising her hand in the photo.

She is 56 years old and is married to a forwarding agent named John. The couple has five children, all of whom attend (or have attended) school, and three of them are still dependents. Kouèba Marguérite has not attended school herself.

For the past ten years, Kouèba Marguérite has been selling corn, wheat flour and cassava flour through the distribution system. Alongside this activity, she also sells local beverages. This allows her to contribute towards the various family expenses. She gets her supplies from Nigeria and also from a village in Benin.

This is the third time Kouèba Marguérite and other members of the Jesukpego-Zogbo group have sought a credit loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to strengthen their business to better meet the needs of their customers. The first two loans have been fully reimbursed.

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.
