This is Ali, 20 years old. He’s a Lebanese single man living with his parents. Ali has a wonderful father who always seeks to offer them a good way of living. Despite his young age, Ali was ready to start his own business and take some responsibilities off of his father. He has owned a silver shop since 2009. He sells a variety of silver items and different kinds of accessories. Because his shop is located in a good place, Ali has gained a fair number of customers.

Today, in order to increase his sales, he decided to take out a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase added silver items and other related accessories. He notes that this will definitely allow him to earn superior income and therefore help his father with their family expenses. Ali is really ambitious and looks forward to improving his business and growing in this occupation.
