Ali is a 31-year-old married man and the father of one child. He has worked as a barber for ten years now, and he is talented in his field, with a special emphasis on customer service. His three previous Kiva loans helped him significantly improve his business tools, machines and decor.

Today Ali is applying for his fourth Kiva loan, with which he will expand his services by dividing his shop into two businesses: the barber shop, plus a new business selling mobile phones for additional income. Ali hopes to stay up to date with new products for both businesses. One day, as his business grows, he hopes to open an international call center, a profitable business in his area.
