Ali is a single 22 year old Lebanese man living with his parents. Regardless of his young age, Ali is doing the best he can to collect money to have his own family and children. Ali's father is the only source of income in the family and took on all expenses and responsibilities, not forgetting that Ali is a great support for him.
For this reason, Ali decided to open a poultry shop a few years ago. He also sells fish upon request and if it’s available. He’s well known for his generosity and good products. Today, he’s looking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a new freezer for his business. In that way, he will be able to maintain the food in good conditions. He notes that this will return to him high profits. In the future, he seeks to open his own snack shop.
