Ali is a 43-year-old Lebanese entrepreneur. He is the father of four children.

In 2000, Ali decided to open a grocery store in his town. He decided on opening his store because of his experience in trading, as well as the fact that he wanted to have independent work. He offers bread, canned food, candies, beverages and more to his clients, who are people from his region. He says that his store is well located since it is on the main road and that is why he receives lots of customers.

Today, Ali requested a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, to purchase merchandise, a fridge for beverages and ice creams, as well as to change his store's window dressing. He hopes that it will increase his sales and therefore, his income.
