Married to a man named Landry, Natcha Viviane is the mother of three children, all in school and her dependents. In addition to their children, the couple have another child in their care. Natcha Viviane and her husband live with their children and jointly take care of the household expenses.

Natcha Viviane attended school for a short period of time only. She has been selling condiments at a market in Benin for about ten years, an activity which allows her to meet her needs without much difficulty. She also stocks up at a market in Benin.

In order to better meet her customers' expectations, Natcha Viviane would like to strengthen and diversify her activity. To do this, she and the other members of the ZEDAGA 1 group are requesting their first loan from 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.
