Raymond C. Adéyè F. was born 23 November 1977 in Porto-Novo, the administrative capital of Benin. Raymond has been living for the past 20 years in Loukoukoumé, part of the Sèmè-Podji commune.
Married to Véronique OKRI Raymond has seven children to care for, of whom six are his own children. All of Raymond’s children attend (or have attended) school, and the family lives together in Loukoukoumé.
Raymond stopped going to school at an early age. Thanks to the income provided by his business activity, he is able to meet his family’s needs. Indeed, Raymond sells electrical supplies (wire, light bulbs, tubing, etc.) as an itinerant vendor. He gets his supplies from Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin, and has been performing this activity for the past eight years.
This is the first time Raymond has requested a loan from ALIDé, to raise the level of his activity and better meet customer demand.

Raymond vend en effet, des matériaux électriques (fils, lampes, tuyaux, etc.) de façon ambulante. Raymond achète ses articles à Cotonou, capitale économique du Bénin. Raymond exerce cette activité depuis près de huit ans. C’est la première fois que Raymond sollicite auprès de ALIDé, un crédit, afin d’élever le niveau de son activité et de mieux faire face à la demande de 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.
