In this Group: Sourou Laurence, S Emma, V Bernadette
The Ste TRINITE group has three members, who are all related.

The group leader, Sourou Laurence, is 27 years old and can be seen holding up her hand in the photo.

Sourou Laurence is single and has no children. She lives alone and is responsible for her own household costs. She attended school to primary level and
has been running a business selling fabrics and shoes for almost 19 years, which enables her to provide for herself without any great problem.

In order to better respond to customer demand, Sourou Laurence wishes to strengthen her business. She has therefore requested a fourth loan from Alidé along with the other members of the Ste TRINITE group. The previous loans have all been repaid in full.

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.
