Ali is a 29-year-old married man and father of one child. He has been working in motorcycle maintenance and selling spare parts since 10 years ago, with no competitors in his region. Ali is an expert in his domain and recommended by his customers.

To improve his living and increase his income, he bought a school bus to work on it early in the morning and in the afternoon to transport students from/to school to nearby villages. He has paid most of its price, but he needs a little amount to pay the rest, so he applied for a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua. He hopes that one day he can open a motorcycle-selling company with a wide showroom.
