D. Godonou Justin was born on June 23, 1978 and is married to KINSOU Bernadette, housewife. The couple is raising four children, all enrolled in school. Among these, two are their biological children. About five years ago, Justin settled in the Tohouè neighborhood of Sèmè-Podji, where he lives with his wife and children. Justin and Bernadette share in supporting their family.
Justin barely attended school. He is a miller with 15 years of experience in his trade. Secondarily, he raises livestock which allows him several sources of income. He gets his supplies in Cotonou, economic capital of Bénin, but does his work at his home. Wishing to expand his business and better service the various needs of his customers, Justin is requesting a loan from ALIDé for the very first time.
D. Godonou Justin est né le 23 Juin 1978 et est marié à KINSOU Bernadette, une ménagère. Le couple a quatre enfants à charge, tous scolarisés. Parmi ces enfants, deux sont leurs propres enfants. Il y a environs cinq ans que Justin s’est installé au quartier Tohouè dans la commune de Sèmè-Podji, où il vit avec ses enfants et sa femme. Justin et Bernadette se partagent les différentes charges familiales. Justin a très peu fréquenté l’école. C’est un meunier, ayant près de quinze ans d’expérience dans l’exercice de cette activité. De façon secondaire, Justin fait de l’élevage, ce qui lui permet d’avoir plusieurs sources de revenus. Justin s’approvisionne à Cotonou, capitale économique du Bénin, mais exerce son activité à son domicile. Dans le but de renforcer son activité et de mieux faire face aux différentes demandes de sa clientèle, Justin sollicite pour la première fois, un 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.
