Born around 1975 in a village in Porto Novo, Mrs. Yabo O. is married to Mr. Pierre Odjo. She is the mother of two children, Annick and Gwladys, and she is responsible for both the children who are still in school. She sells tinned tomatoes that she buys in Nigeria and delivers immediately to the market to her customers who are already waiting. Because of the rising cost of living that we are undergoing at present and the price hikes, she came to our institution to obtain a loan so as to better position herself in the marketplace.

Née vers 1975 dans un village de Porto Novo, dame O. Yabo a épousé à monsieur ODJO Pierre. Elle est mère de 02 enfants, Annick et Gwladys, tous à sa charge et scolarisés. Elle vend des tomates en boîtes qu'elle achète du Nigeria et qu'elle livre immédiatement au marché à ses clientes qui l'attendent déjà. A cause de la cherté de la vie que nous traversons actuellement et de la flambée des prix, elle s'est rapprochée de notre institution pour obtenir un prêt afin de mieux se positionner sur le marché.

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.
