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).

La Victoire Group's story

The group LA VICTOIRE is composed of nine persons who live in the same district. The group's representative, named Pascaline (with her hand raised in the photo), is 61 years old and did not attend school. With the goal of bolstering her working capital, Pascaline, along with the other members of her group, is requesting financial support from ALIDé to cope better with customer demands.

Pascaline is married to a man named Christophe. The couple have four children, not all in school but all in their care. Pascaline lives together with her husband and children. The different household expenses are covered by her and her husband. To do so, Pascaline has been selling food supplies, soap, and canned foods in her region for about twenty years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin. Pascaline and the other members of the group LA VICTOIRE are requesting a loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Pascaline , Franck, Adjouavi Honorine , Pierrette, Bertille Assiba, Adama, Arnaud, Angèle Gbènakpon, Virginie
