"I'm Ali. My work is to polish floor tiles and to paint. I work with my uncle Yusuf. We asked the brothers at Al Majmoua for a loan to buy a new electricity generator. This one [pictured] has pretty much expired. We've been in this business for almost 18 years, and we have 22 employees. God willing, we will receive this loan, and we will be thankful. God bless."

Ali is taking out a loan to purchase a generator for his business. Power outages have become the norm this year in Lebanon, and residents of Saida typically only see 6-8 hours of electricity per day.
