Ali is a hard worker. He seeks perfection and improvement in his business.

Ali is energetic and talented. He has eight years of experience in this business. At the beginning, he started working with his brother. The hardest part in his working history was when he decided to split the businesses and start his own career. This step forward made him work hard to gain customers' trust and gain new ones.

Ali is improving his business as much as he can. To do so, Ali applied for a "Youth Loan" from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy necessary glass requested for a project he had to accomplish. This loan is very necessary to his business. It will help in increasing his income and at the same time it will reflect positively on his reputation in the market.
