I'm not sure if there are several options for the belt but I'd suggest you to post your VIN or at least the first six digits (numbers) of it.

You don't say where you come from, we don't have licence plates like that, I cannot pull the VIN from that info. Don't you have any papers about the car, VIN should be printed and easily available, also if it is raining.

There are so many different 208-models, I don't want to give a try with one example, it would be too likely to fail.

By the way, did you check your user manual, some have the serpentine belt diagram printed.

The diagram has to be printed somewhere. Some cars have a label in the engine compartment, some drawing in the manual.
The rule of thumb is that the crankshaft pulley needs to have about 180 degrees loop of belt on it. So looking on the engine from front and going clockwise the belt goes under the crankshaft pulley, wraps it toward 2 o'clock, where usually is a tensioner on idler pulley, than goes back toward 8 o'clock, loops on whatever is there and than wraps around all the pulleys on the engine.
Years ago in Tennessee I had 3 senior mechanics and supervisors of Peep Boys working over 1 hr on my W124 and they managed to put the belt wrong, giving me a BS that the slippage was due to bad tensioner. Next day at campground took me 5 minutes with manual to figure it out.
