Alayan's story

Alayan is a 47-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and their three children. All of his children attend school.

He is the main source of income for his family. Since 2000, he has owned and operated a café in his town. At his café, he serves hubble-bubble, soft drinks and many other products. People visit him from all over the neighboring villages to enjoy their time with friends.

Now, he is looking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase Sanita paper products, soft drinks and many other items.
