B. Kamal Deen est né le 08 Septembre 1986 à Ekpè, dans la commune de Sèmè-Podji. Deen vit seul et habite Ekpè depuis une dizaine d'année. Deen n'a fréquenté que l'école primaire, et a appris ensuite la coiffure. Deen exerce cette activité depuis trois ans, ce qui lui procure des revenus l'aidant à subvenir à ses besoins. Deen achète ses produits de coiffure à Dantokpa, marché international du Bénin. En vue de renover son atelier de coiffure par l'achat de matériels de coiffure performents et adaptés pour le bon fonctionnement de son activité, Deen sollicite un premier crédit auprès de 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.
