Alidé means “another path always exists for the most poor” in Fon, the principal tribal language of Cotonou, Benin. Benin is a small country in West Africa sandwiched between Togo and Nigeria. GDP per capita stands at $1,500 and poverty is endemic to the capital city of Cotonou. Alidé operates seven different locations in and around Cotonou to ensure that those who need help can help themselves through small loans.
