Antoinette Clémence's story

Antoinette Clémence D. M. was born around 1963. She is the mother of 6 children and is married to Bienvenu Akodjetin. Antoinette Clémence D. M. lives in Fidjrossè, outsiD. the city of Cotonou, Benin's economic capital. She sells corn wholesale and sacs of charcoal and obtains her materials from local markets in the interior of her country. Antoinette Clémence D. M. also sells corn porridge and donuts at certain times. This is her second loan with Alidé and will augment her capital to allow her to respond better to the strong market demand. She is also seeking another loan with Alidé. In Bénin's local language, le Fon, Aidé means "there is always a way for the poorest". Benin is a small country in West Africa, next to Nigeria, with a per capita income of $1,500. AliD. offers special loans at 0% interest for the very vulnerable. It is also part of a group that will soon launch a micro-heatlh insurance program for those benefiting from micro-credit.
