Ali's story

Ali is a 30-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents and one sibling. His father strives to work really hard in order to satisfy his family's needs. After fifteen years of experience as a carpenter, Ali decided to open his own carpentry in 2008. He’s a reputable person who has gained a fair number of loyal customers so far.

Today, he is asking for a youth loan of $1,600 from Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase an electric saw and a quantity of wood needed for his work. He notes that this will boost his productivity and thus improve his business. In the future, he plans to take on bigger projects outside the country.
