Mrs. Frida C. was born on February 28, 1987 in Dangbo in the Ouémé district, where she is from. She went to school up to grade 5. After having received her Certificate of Primary Studies (CPP) she left her classes to sell food items and clothing which she was doing at the same time as studying. Finally, she chose to sell "akassa" with fried fish and hot pepper sauce, commonly called "mojo". Six months ago, she went over to selling costume jewelry and ready-to-wear which she sells on orders received from her customers. It is with the intent of bolstering these businesses that she is requesting her third loan.

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.
