Emilienne D. was born on the 19th March 1972 and is married to Sebastien Gbetinde, a quilter. The couple have four children in their care, of which 3 are their own children. It's been four years since the family settled in the Yabe district of Cotonou, economic capital of Benin. Emilienne and her husband together cover all the household expenses. To achieve this, Emilienne prepares and sells food (corn paste) in Cotonou. Emilienne buys her products in Dantokpa, Benin's international market. She is a longterm client of ALIDe, having taken out 6 loans, all of which have been diligently repaid. In order to strengthen her business, and to better face the growing demands of her clientele, Emilienne is requesting another loan.
D. Emilienne est née le 19 Mars 1972 et est mariée à GBETINDE Sébastien, un matelassier. Le couple a quatre enfants à leur charge, dont trois sont leurs propres enfants. Il y a quatre ans que la famille s'est installée au quartier Yagbé à Cotonou, capitale économique du Bénin. Emilienne et son mari assurent ensemble les différentes charges de la maison. Pour y parvenir, Emilienne prépare et vend de la nourriture (pâte de maïs) à Cotonou. Emilienne achète ses produits à Dantokpa, marché international du Bénin. C'est une ancienne cliente de ALIDé, ayant obtenu six prêts qui ont tous été bien remboursés. Dans le but de renforcer son activité et de mieux faire face à la demande de jour en jour nombreuse de sa clientèle, Emilienne sollicite un autre crédit.
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.
