In addition to his construction business, Ali has been a partner in a bakery. Recently, he bought out his partner and now needs to do necessary maintenance to his new business. He is confident that this step will have a significant and positive effect on his family's situation.
Through a requested loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, Ali will buy new machines and an improved wide oven in addition to purchasing necessary raw materials.
Ali hopes to expand both businesses in a very strategic way, and to gain and preserve his customers' trust.
