Ali's story

Ali is a 21-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and four siblings. In 2010, in order to supplement the family’s income, he decided to start his own work as a farmer. His father is the main income provider, but his income is not enough to cover their heavy life costs. Ali works independently; his job consists in cultivating seasonal fruit. He knows very well how to take care of the trees, especially from one season to another. Today, he is asking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase required agricultural tools and supplies, a new electric saw and many other items. He states that the loan will certainly help him increase his business productivity by a fair percentage which will give him higher profits. In the future, he plans to take more Kiva loans and better develop his business.
