Ali is a 34-year-old, married father of two children. For 15 years, he has been employed in an aluminum manufacturing company. His wife doesn't work, and one of his children is currently enrolled in a public school. All of these aspects put so much pressure on him to work harder in order to cover his family's needs.

Ali is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, to buy a car that will facilitate most of his family needs and will help him to start taking private aluminum requests after working hours. This car will be the best way to transport his required tools and materials until he becomes financially capable of opening his own aluminum work company.
