Jesukpego 7 Group
In this Group: Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana, Mawulawè Hortense, Bernadette Sica
The Jesukpego 7 group has three members, who all live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is called Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana, and is pictured with her hand raised in the photo. This is the first time that this group has requested financial assistance from Alidé, and they have done so to increase their business levels.

Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana is 39 years of age, and is married to Sylvain. The couple has three children, all of whom are at school but none of whom are dependent on them. Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana lives with her children and husband, and she and her husband make sure that the various household expenses are covered.

Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana went to school until secondary level, and about 10 years ago started her business selling fabrics, shoe, kitchen utensils, and perfume in a Benin neighborhood. She gets her supplies in a market in Benin and in Togo. Customer demand is growing, and given her limited means, she can no longer meet their requests. Due to this, and because of her lack of resources, Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana and the other members of the Jesukpego 7 group have requested their first joint loan from Alidé.

Le groupe JESUKPEGO 7 est formé de trois personnes qui résident dans le même quartier. La représentante de ce groupe, nommée Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana est celle dont la main est levée sur la photo. C’est la première fois que ce groupe sollicite l’appui financier de ALIDé en vue d’élever le niveau de leur activité. Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana est âgée de 39 ans et est mariée à un certain Sylvain. Le couple a trois enfants tous scolarisés dont aucun n’est plus à leur charge. Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana vit ensemble avec ses enfants et son mari. Le couple supporte ensemble les diverses charges du ménage. Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana a fréquenté l'école jusqu’au niveau secondaire. Il y a une dizaine d’année environs que Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana mène comme activité la vente des tissus, des chaussures, des ustensiles de cuisine et des articles de parfumerie dans un quartier du Bénin. Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana s’approvisionne dans un marché du Bénin et au Togo. La demande de sa clientèle devient de plus en plus grande et compte tenu de ses moyens limités, Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana n'arrive plus à bien répondre à leurs exigences. Eu égard à cela et compte tenu de leurs ressources limitées, Ablawa Bénédicta Tatiana et les autres membres du groupe JESUKPEGO 7 sollicitent ensemble un premier crédit auprès de ALIDé.

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.
