Anne B. G. has lived in the Irédé neighborhood of Cotonou, the economic capitol of Bénin for a decade. Married to Tidjani Raman, Anne is the mother of two children whom she sends to school. Anne lives with her husband and children. The couple shares the family responsibilities. Having never been to school, Anne was lead to the sale of corn and akassa (a local food made from a base of corn starch) from her home as a job. As a supplemental income, Anne also sells bundles of firewood. Anne buys her product at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin. Anne is a former client of ALIDé who has always well carried out her repayments. Anne's cliental increases from day to day, and she no longer manages to satisfy all of her customers considering the small amount of cash she has at her disposal. It is for this reason she would like to strengthen her business with another loan.
G. Anne B. vit depuis une dizaine d'année au quartier Irédé à Cotonou, capitale économique du Bénin. Mariée à RAMAN Tidjani, Anne est mère de deux enfants qui sont tous scolarisés. Anne vit ensemble avec ses enfants et son mari. Le couple assure ensemble les différentes charges familiales. N'ayant jamais été à l'école, Anne mène comme activité, la vente de maïs et d'akassa (aliment local fait à base d'amidon de maïs) à son domicile. De façon secondaire, Anne vend également des fagots de bois. C'est à Dantokpa, marché international du Bénin, que Anne achète ses produits. Anne est une ancienne cliente de ALIDé, qui a toujours bien effectué ses remboursements. La clientèle de Anne s'accroit au jour le jour, et Anne n'arrive plus à satisfaire tous ses clients, compte tenu du peu de moyens financiers dont elle dispose. C'est donc pour renforcer son activité que Anne sollicite un autre prêt.
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.
