Ali is a 24-year-old single man, working in agriculture for the past six years. Ali is a hard worker; he loves his business and works hard to improve it. Ali farms other people's fields. He fertilizes them and works hard to make them productive. He sells the crops in wholesale markets after he pays what’s requested from the owners of the land. Most people who own land find it hard to harvest and plant their own fields, which makes Ali's services in high demand.
He is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua in order to buy the necessary fertilizers and agricultural chemicals for his business. He prefers to buy these supplies in large quantities, because that brings down the price.
Ali hopes to own his own land in the future, because then he would be able to keep more of the profits and not pay the landowner.
