Âgé de 33 ans, Salomon vit au Bénin et a très peu fréquenté l’école. Salomon est marié à une couturière du nom de Jacqueline. Le couple a cinq enfants tous scolarisés et à leur charge. En plus de leurs enfants, le couple a un autre enfant à charge. Salomon vit ensemble avec ses enfants et sa femme et assure ensemble avec sa femme les différentes charges du ménage. Salomon a appris la peinture-auto, activité qu’il exerce depuis deux ans dans sa région et qui lui procure des revenus non négligeables. La clientèle de Salomon devient de plus en plus grandissante. Afin de perfectionner son activité et d'être plus compétitif sur le marché, Salomon désire acquérir de nouveaux matériels de travail. Salomon s'approvisionne dans une ville du Bénin et au Nigeria. Dans la quête de la satisfaction de sa clientèle et pour accroître son chiffre d'affaire et son revenu, Salomon sollicite une deuxième fois l’appui financier de ALIDé. Le crédit reçu antérieurement a été bien remboursé.
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.
