Ali is a 48-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife and five working children. They are all working together in order to enhance their way of living. Ali started as a construction worker in 1981. He works independently on a freelance basis and looks forward to taking on more projects.
Today, he is in need of a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase needed construction tools and supplies for his business. This loan will improve his business and allow him earn superior income. In the future, he plans to take on new projects and attract added customers.
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.
