Adiatou was born in Benin in 1982. She is married to Idrissou. The spouses have two children, all attending school and in their care. Adiatou lives with her husband and the children. She shares household expenses with her husband. Adiatou has had very little formal education.
To provide for her needs and those of her children, she sells fabrics in her neighborhood. She gets her supplies at one of the largest markets in Benin. Thanks to her income from this activity, she pays for the various family expenses. In order to continuously strengthen her activity level and increase her profit, Adiatou came to the microfinance institution Alidé and applied for her third loan. The previous two loans have been repaid on schedule.
Née en 1982 au Bénin, Adiatou est mariée à un certain Idrissou. Le couple à deux enfants, tous scolarisés et à leur charge. Adiatou vit avec son mari et ses enfants. Adiatou assure avec son mari les différentes charges de la maison. Adiatou a très peu fréquenté l’école. Pour satisfaire ses besoins ainsi que ceux de ses enfants, Adiatou vend des tissus dans son quartier. Adiatou s’approvisionne dans l’un des plus grands marchés du Bénin. Cette activité lui génère des revenus l’aidant à couvrir les différentes charges de sa famille. Dans l’optique de rehausser davantage le niveau de son activité et d’accroître son profit, Adiatou sollicite un troisième crédit auprès de ALIDé. Les deux premiers crédits ont été tous bien remboursés.
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.
