Claire
D. Claire was born in 1986 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin.  She is unmarried and has no children yet.  She therefore lives by herself and covers her own expenses by herself.  Nearly sixteen years ago, she settled in the Avotrou district in Cotonou. 

Claire did not attend school.  To meet her needs, she has a business selling sauce condiments and a variety of other goods (pasta, canned tomatoes and sardines, eggs, couscous, peas, etc.) at the Avotrou market in Cotonou.  Dantokpa, the international market of Benin, is where she purchases her different supplies.  She has been in this business for three years and has already benefited from two loans that she has repaid. 

To cope with the more and more numerous demands of her customers, Claire is requesting a third loan that will enable her to raise her business level a bit more and to satisfy her customers further.
View original language description ↓
D. Claire est née en 1986 à Cotonou, capitale économique du Bénin. Claire est une célibataire qui n'a pas encore d'enfant. Claire vit donc seule et assure seule ses charges. Il y a près de seize ans que Claire s'est installée au quartier Avotrou à Cotonou. Claire n'a pas féquenté l'école. Pour faire face à ses besoins, Claire mène comme activité la vente de condiments de sauce et divers autres produits (pâtes alimentaires, conserves de tomate et de sardine, œufs, couscous, petits pois, etc.) au marché de Avotrou à Cotonou. C'est à Dantokpa, marché international du Bénin, que Claire achète ses différents produits. Claire exerce cette activité depuis trois ans et a déjà bénéficié de deux prêts qu'elle a tous bien remboursés. Face à la demande de plus en plus nombreuse de sa clientèle, Claire sollicite auprès de ALIDé un troisième prêt, qui lui permettra d'élever un peu plus le niveau de son activité et de mieux satisfaire sa clientèle.

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.
