Suzanne T. is 43 years old. She is married and has three children.
Suzanne has never been to school nor learnt a craft. As a child, Suzanne went to live with a female relative who introduced her to commerce. For about a decade, Suzanne has had her own business selling a variety of items: shoes, handbags, drinking glasses, etc. She has already had four loans from Alidé, which she repaid successfully. Suzanne is requesting a fifth loan from Alidé to increase her stock of shoes in order to better satisfy her customers.
T. Suzanne est âgée de 43 ans. Suzanne est mariée et est mère de trois enfants.
Suzanne n’est jamais allée à l’école ni appris un métier. Dès son enfance, Suzanne fut placée chez une parente qui l'a initiée au commerce. Depuis une dizaine d'année, Suzanne s’est installée à son propre compte et vend divers articles: chaussures, sacs, verres à boire, etc. Suzanne a déjà bénéficié de quatre crédits de la part d’ALIDé et a bien remboursé ces crédits. Suzanne sollicite un cinquième crédit d’ALIDé pour augmenter le volume de ses chaussures afin de mieux satisfaire sa clientèle.
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.
