L. Sévérine was born in 1977 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. Married to ALLAGBE Lawal, she is the mother of three children who are all in school. For nearly six years, she has lived in the Yénawa district in Cotonou with her husband and children. The couple provides for the family jointly.
Sévérine attended school through the secondary level. For a dozen years, she has been selling liqueurs of all kinds in Gbogbanou in Cotonou. She stocks up from Dantokpa, the international market of Benin.
She is a previous ALIDé client, having already benefited from three loans, which have been repaid. To augment her stock of liqueurs, to satisfy her customers as the holidays approach, she's requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé.

Sévérine habite depuis près de 6 ans, le quartier Yénawa à Cotonou, avec son mari et ses enfants. Le couple supporte ensemble les charges de la famille. Sévérine a fréquenté l’école jusqu’au cours secondaire. Il y a une douzaine d’année que Sévérine vend des liqueurs de tous genres à Gbogbanou à Cotonou. Sévérine s’approvisionne à Dantokpa, marché international du Bénin. C’est une ancienne cliente de ALIDé ayant déjà bénéficié de trois crédits et qui ont été bien remboursés. Afin d’augmenter son stock de liqueurs pour satisfaire sa clientèle à l’approche des fêtes, Sévérine sollicite un quatrième crédit auprès de ALIDé.
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.
