Ali's story

Ali is a 28-year-old man who lives in Bourj El Barajneh, in the southern suburbs of Lebanon, with his wife and their two children. Ali has been working as a shoe and handbag repairer since 1995. Ali is special in his work because he is the only one in his region, and also, this kind of business isn’t found much anymore. His clients are people from and outside his region; people come from everywhere since his business is rare nowadays.

Ali requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to repair his sewing machine. This is the first time that Ali has requested a loan. When he first started his business, he didn’t face any difficulty. He decided on doing his business because he wanted to have an independent job. In the future, he plans on improving his business.
