Ali is a 22-year-old single man from Lebanon. He has been working in the construction field for the past 5 years. In 2011, he started to work independently, responding promptly to any request he receives. He specializes in installing bricks over buildings. His work is very tough and he must work very carefully to end up with a good quality result.

Today, he is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase a welding generator for his business. He states that the generator will mainly facilitate his tasks. In the future, he plans to open his own office and enlarge his operations by dealing with multiple construction entrepreneurs.
