A loan of $2,000 helped to prepare the legal registration papers that will allow him to open his own shop.


Ali's story

Ali is a 21-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and seven siblings. In 2009, in order to supplement the family's income, he decided to start his own business. His job consists of distributing tobacco. He works on a free-lance basis and wishes to open his own shop. He has a wide range of clients asking for his products.

This is why he's asking today to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to prepare the legal registration papers that will allow him to open his own shop. This will certainly increase the demand for his products and facilitate his work as well; especially since it wouldn't be necessary for him to visit his customers at their places. In the future, he plans to take more Kiva loans and expand his business as much as he can.
