Born in Ouidah, Mrs. Cica Dodnon went to school for only two years. After leaving school, she helped her mother sell maize porridge. Then, on her own account, she began to sell bread and cooked food: a mixture of rice and beans accompanied by fries, commonly called "atassi". But she preferred selling bread and so finally stopped selling "atassi". She added the sale of vegetable oil for cooking. She is requesting this loan of 120,000 F CFA to bolster her business. Married, she has 6 children, of whom the youngest, Blanchard Samuel, is only 5 months old.

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.
