Raymond C. Adéyè's story

Raymond C. Adéyè F. was born 23 November 1977 in Porto-Novo, the administrative capital of Benin. Raymond has been living for the past 20 years in Loukoukoumé, part of the Sèmè-Podji commune.

Married to Véronique OKRI Raymond has seven children to care for, of whom six are his own children. All of Raymond’s children attend (or have attended) school, and the family lives together in Loukoukoumé.

Raymond stopped going to school at an early age. Thanks to the income provided by his business activity, he is able to meet his family’s needs. Indeed, Raymond sells electrical supplies (wire, light bulbs, tubing, etc.) as an itinerant vendor. He gets his supplies from Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin, and has been performing this activity for the past eight years.

This is the first time Raymond has requested a loan from ALIDé, to raise the level of his activity and better meet customer demand.
