Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Flavien's Group's story

This group is composed of two persons who reside in the same district. The group's representative, Flavien (with his hand raised in the photo), is 50 years old. Flavien has a middle school education. He is married to a retailer name Pauline. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. Flavien lives with his wife and his children. He and his wife jointly ensure that the diverse household expenses are covered. To meet family needs, he produces and markets mineral water, commonly called Pure Water, for eight years out of his home. On the side, he is an accountant's assistant in a local organization. He gets his supplies from a market in Benin. With the goal of bolstering his business, Flavien joined with the other member of his group to request an initial loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Flavien , Léa Lazarine
