Ali is a 57-year-old borrower from Lebanon. He is married and has four children. He has more than 30 years of experience as a car mechanic. He says that his services are very good, as well as his work. He is proud of his extensive experience and honest work. He has been able to serve a wide range of clients, mainly people from his region. He decided on doing his work because he wanted to have an independent job since he prefers working on his own and wanted no need to depend on anyone.

Today, for the fourth time, he has requested a loan from A. Majmoua, a Kiva partner, to purchase tools for his work, as well as pay his children's school tuition fees. His previous loans allowed him to improve his work and purchase more sophisticated tools. He hopes to further expand and enhance his business in the future.
