Ali has been working at furniture making for 15 years, and this long experience gave him customers' trust. Ali opened his own factory in January 2011 and he is working hard on improving it. Ali's customers have big faith in him, because he started this business very early; he was very young when he learned this job which gave him a special touch.
He is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy necessary machines and tools for his business. This is Ali's first experience as Al Majmoua borrower, so he is looking forward to investing future loans in expanding his business more and more through buying updated machines.
To help with his family's income and expenses, Ali also own a school bus which he works on during the school season, and he is working hard on improving this business as much as he can.
