Ali is a 32-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and five children. He is an experienced construction worker specialized in floor covering and cleaning. He has been involved in this occupation for the past 13 years. His story illustrates the day-to-day challenges many people are facing in trying to take care of the household expenses (health, education and many other expenses).

With his requested loan of $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, he will be able to purchase a new flooring machine. He notes that this machine will remarkably smooth the progress of his work. He expects that his business will continue to be successful in the coming year.
