Misséhounton Cléméntine's story

Misséhounton Cléméntine L. was born on September 29, 1967, in southern Benin. She is married and the mother of three children, who are all still in her care. Cléméntine owns a small food stall where she sells food and drink. Her business is in Cotonou neighborhood near a Beninese company that manufactures fabrics, called Sobetex. This is a good location as there is always a steady stream of Sobetex employees who eat at her stall during lunch. Cléméntine is seeking a loan from Kiva partner, Alidé, in order to restock her supplies. She would like to purchase rice, corn, millet, and drinks. Cléméntine hopes to expand her operations and, ultimately, to increase her standard of living.
