Salifou's story

D. Salifou was born on August 1, 1985. Salifou is married and the father of 2 children, both in school. Salifou left school at a young age to begin selling electronic devices. He buys his merchandise in Nigeria, a country bordering Benin. He needs more working capital so as to be able to meet the needs of his clientele. That is the reason why Salifou has come to ALIDé to take out a loan.

The significance of ALIDé in the local language of Bénin, Fon, is "there is always a pathway for the poorest of the poor." Bénin is a small country in West Africa next door to Nigeria. Its per capita annual income stands at US$ 1,500.
