This is Ali, a Lebanese married man. He’s 28 years old. Since his marriage, Ali has lived with his wife and two children. He was the one responsible for everything, especially covering their costs and expenses. However, Ali doesn’t hesitate to offer his family whatever they ask for. This is why he decided to start his own business. He opened his own mobile phone shop in 2010. He also sells recharge cards as extra earnings.

In parallel, he serves in the internal security forces. Today, he’s asking for a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase added supplies for his business such as cellphones, recharge cards, and many other items. This Kiva loan will certainly increase his sales thus his profits. This is why Ali works every day to build a good future, hoping to live a better life.
