Kuavi Charlotte was born on 11th May 1983 in Benin. She is married and mother to three children, all of whom are at school. Kuavi Charlotte lives with her family in a town in Benin. She sells corn in a shop which she has installed in her home, and she gets her supplies in the north of Benin. This business procures her an income which helps her to contribute to the family expenses. Kuavi Charlotte's ambition is to raise her business volume and expand her business by opening a second shop to sell her products; this will allow her to increase her turnover and income but at the same time respond better to customer demand. In order to do all this, she is for the first time requesting a loan from Alidé.
Kuavi Charlotte est née le 11 Mai 1983 au Bénin. Mariée et mère de trois enfants, tous scolarisés, Kuavi Charlotte vit ensemble avec sa famille dans une ville du Bénin. Kuavi Charlotte vend du maïs dans sa boutique size à son domicile, et se ravitaille dans le Nord du Bénin. Cette activité lui procure des revenus l’aidant ainsi à participer aux charges familiales. Kuavi Charlotte ambitionne élever le niveau de son activité et l’étendre par l’ouverture d’une deuxième boutique de vente de ses produits ; ce qui lui permettra d’augmenter son chiffre d’affaire et son revenu, mais également de mieux répondre aux exigences de sa clientèle. Pour ce faire, Kuavi Charlotte sollicite pour la première fois, un 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.
