Ali is a 29-year-old married man with one young child. He has been involved in the construction sector for the past ten years.
In 2006, Ali decided to work on his own and take on home projects. He started with small projects and he's very thankful for the results. He has been able to meet his family’s needs and to raise his baby.
Today, Ali is requesting $1,000 to buy steel stands specialized for the construction business because he’s planning to take on bigger projects and develop his business.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes entrepreneurs may have been altered to protect their privacy (i.e., blurring portions of the borrower's picture, not indicating a name and location, etc.). Vitas appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to continue their support for Lebanon's borrowers.
