Ali is a 58-year-old, widowed man from Lebanon, who lives with his nephews. Twenty years ago, he started to work in a lingerie shop, and after gaining the needed experience, he was able to open his own shop in 2009. His store is located in a strategic point; he has a fair number of loyal customers to whom he offers a wide variety of lingerie.

Ali and his nephews are cooperating together for a better standard of living. And today, he is asking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, to expand his store’s inventory of new lingerie collections. He’s sure and certain that the loan will help him diversify his merchandise selection. In the future, he is hoping to sell women's clothes, in addition to lingerie.
