Ali is a single man born in 1994, with an elementary level of education since he had to quit school to support his family, which consists of five other members; he is the sole earner.

Six years ago he started working in a sawmill, but his limited salary isn’t enough to cover his family’s increasing needs. For this reason, he started his own wholesale stationary and school supplies business as an additional income.

Today, Ali is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua to increase his business merchandise with newly released, special offered school supplies, to get ready for the coming educational year.

Ali is working hard to develop his family’s living. He hopes that in the future, he can open a household products selling shop, to make sure that he can cover his beloved family’s increasing needs.
