Ali is a 40-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife and two school-aged children. He’s the one taking care of his family and seeking to offer them a suitable life.

In 1990, Ali opened his own restaurant. He’s specialized in cooking and selling chicken. People visit him from all the neighbor areas because of his delightful and delicious food. Today, he needs to take out a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase an ice cream machine for his restaurant. This product-diversification will allow him to attract more customers. In the future, he plans to enlarge his restaurant and increase his profits.
