Delphine S. was born on 20 November 1976 at Ouidah, a historic city in Benin. Married to Bertin Gouedou, Delphine is responsibile for three children, all of whom are educated and live with the couple in the Agontinkon neighborhood of Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. Delphine moved to this neighborhood three years ago. The couple work together to take care of the family. In order to take care of her needs and to bring financial support to her husband, Delphine sells typical African-style cloth (such as Bazins, Hitarget) and suits through the distribution system. She stocks up on materials in Dantokpa, the international market in Benin, and at Lomé in Togo. Delphine would like to increase the level of her activity and respond better to the multiple demands of her clients. It is for this reason that Delphine is soliciting, for the first time, a loan from ALIDé.
S. Delphine est née le 20 Novembre 1976 à Ouidah, ville historique du Bénin. Mariée à GUEDOU Bertin, Delphine a trois enfants à charge. Tous les enfants sont scolarisés et vivent avec le couple au quartier Agontinkon à Cotonou, capitale économique du Bénin. Il y a trois ans que Delphine s'est installée dans ce quartier. Le couple assure ensemble les différentes charges de la famille. Pour subvenir à ses besoins et apporter un appui financier à son mari, Delphine vend des tissus (bazins, hitarget, etc.) ainsi que des costumes par le système de distribution. C'est à Dantokpa, marché international du Bénin, et à Lomé au Togo que Delphine se ravitaille. Delphine voudrait rehausser le niveau de son activité et mieux répondre aux multiples exigences de sa clientèle. C'est pour cette raison que Delphine sollicite pour une première fois, de prêt à 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.
