Yemalin Femi 5 Group
Florentine is 29 years old and married to Florentin. The couple have two children, of whom one is enrolled in school and both are in their care. Florentine and her husband live together with their children and share in providing for the family.
In order to contribute to the various needs of her family, Florentine has been hawking pasta and empty wheat sacks on foot and selling the goods in a market for nine years. She buys her supplies in a market in Benin.
Wishing to grow their businesses and better satisfy their clientele, Florentine and the other members of the group called Yemalin Femi 5 are asking for a third loan from Alidé. Their ambition is to expand their activities. The two prior loans have been correctly reimbursed.
About AlidéAlidé 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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
