Ali is a 25-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife and one child. He’s the main income provider for the family and their only support. For this reason, he decided to have his own business, hoping to add some special changes in their life.

After many years of experience as a barber, Ali opened his own barber shop in 2006. Today, he’s looking to borrow a youth loan, from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l., to change his salon’s interior decoration and to purchase new barbering tools. In this way, he will be able to gain added clients and to improve his business. In the future, he plans to enlarge his salon and hire people to work with him.
