A loan of $1,300 helped to buy a new car for his business.


Ali's story

Ali is a 22-year-old single man, working and living in Saida, in the south of Lebanon. He has been operating an auto repair workshop since 2008, during which time his business has grown steadily. He is well known in the region, and has a good number of clients who represent most of his relatives, friends and neighbors.

Ali is requesting a loan for the second time from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, in order to buy a new car necessary for his newly established business. He has
started selling hardware, so he needs a car to buy and sell the hardware among neighboring villages, as extra income in his free time.

His previous loan was invested in purchasing tools and stock for his auto repair workshop, and it reflected positively on his social & financial situation that helped in starting a new business.

In the future, Ali hopes to open a larger shop next to the main road that will attract more customers.
