Ali is working hard to improve his family’s living, and his painting business isn’t good enough to cover the unexpected needs that have arisen. So he thought of starting a new, extra business, which he believes will provide him with a good income throughout the whole year. His existing painting business is almost seasonal; his high season is during summer, and he barely works during the autumn and winter seasons.
For his next step, Ali is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua. He will use the loan to open a computer shop, where people can come to play games and to access the Internet, for projects and entertainment. His future plan is to expand his current and newly-established businesses.
