Ali is a 34-year-old, Lebanese, married man living with his wife and one child who attends school. He has been working as a taxi driver since 2007. His main route is between his town and the surrounding villages. He also provides private transportation upon client request. His business income is highly important as he represents the only income source for the family. Since the car he drives is a rental car, today he is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to be able to purchase this car. In that way, he will benefit from all the returns of his business and therefore increase his income by a fair percentage. This is his second Kiva loan and he hopes to be able to improve his business as well as his family’s financial situation.
