Ali's story

Ali is a 21-year-old Syrian refugee who wishes to get a Syrian refugee loan product for the first time from Kiva’s field partner, Al Majmoua. He fled the war in Syria and came to Lebanon in 2011.

Ali faced a lot of hardships before he finally managed to settle for a job as a construction machines driver, which was the same job he had back in Syria. He talked about the difficulty he underwent to find a job vacancy in Lebanon. Ali’s father is deceased and thus he needs to help providing for his mother and two siblings. He knows that the total family income is significantly low and barely grants them the ability to pay for their house rent.

Ali wants to benefit from this loan so that he can pay for necessary marriage expenses. His dream is to buy his own machine and expand his work.
