The group JESUKPEGO comprises thirteen persons who live in the same district. This is the third time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their business. The group's representative, Cécile, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 38 years old and lives in Benin. Cécile halted her studies in primary school. She no longer lives with her husband but has three children, all in school and in her care. So she lives alone with her three children and ensures their different needs are covered, thanks to the revenues from her business.

For about 25 years, Cécile has been selling chickens, snails, and grocery items on the side in her region. She gets her supplies from regions in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and her revenues, Cécile is requesting, along with the other members of your group JESUKPEGO, a third loan from ALIDé. The first two loans were indeed paid back.

Le groupement JESUKPEGO est composé de treize personnes qui habitent le même quartier. C'est la troisième fois que ce groupement sollicite l'aide financier de ALIDé, afin d'élever le niveau de son activité. La représentante de ce groupement, du nom de Cécile est celle qui a la main levée sur la photo. Cécile est âgée de 38 ans et vit au Bénin. Cécile a arrêté l’école au niveau primaire. Cécile ne vit plus avec son mari, mais a trois enfants, tous scolarisés et à sa charge. Cécile vit donc seule avec ses trois enfants et assure leurs différents besoins grâce aux revenus de son activité.Il y a environs vingt cinq ans que Cécile vend des poulets, des escargots et des produits alimentaires de façon secondaire dans sa région. Cécile s’approvisionne dans des régions du Bénin. Dans la quête de la satisfaction de sa clientèle et pour accroître son chiffre d’affaire et son revenu, Cécile sollicite ensemble avec les autres membres du groupement JESUKPEGO, un troisième crédit auprès de ALIDé. Les deux premiers prêts ont été bien remboursés.

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.
