Née le 10 juillet 1976 au Bénin, Félicité est mariée à un enseignant du nom de Noel. Le couple a cinq enfants, tous scolarisés dont trois restent encore à leur charge. Félicité vit ensemble avec son mari et ses enfants. Les diverses charges de la maison sont assurées par le couple. Félicité a arrêté l’école au cours secondaire. Pour subvenir à ses besoins et à ceux de ses enfants, Félicité prépare de la nourriture (pâte de maïs, riz, accompagné de sauce aux poissons, etc.) qu’elle vend à son domicile. A côté de cette activité qui lui génère des revenus, Félicité vend des boissons non alcoolisées. Félicité s’approvisionne dans l’un des marchés du Bénin. Dans le but de rehausser son activité et de mieux répondre à la demande de sa clientèle, Félicité sollicite auprès de ALIDé un troisième prêt. Les deux premiers crédits ont été tous bien remboursés.

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.
