Ali is a 24-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife. Like every couple, Ali and his wife wish to have their own family of children. For this reason, they combine forces to be able to cover the heavy life expenses.

Ali opened his own butchery in 2005. He’s a reputable person and always searches to deliver good and fresh products. Today, he’s asking for a youth loan of $2100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy new tools and equipment for his butchery. In that way, he will be able to develop his business and augment his sales. In the future, he plans to raise cattle and start his own dairy products trading business.
