Ali requests a loan of $1200 USD from Al Majmoua in order to purchase materials for agriculture and jars. This is the first time that Ali has requested a loan.
Ali is special in his work because he has different types of flowers, has good prices and has a good relationship with his clients. His clients are his friends and neighbors. When he first started he had the land to start his business, but he didn’t have a lot of knowledge of pricing and trading. Ali decided to work in this business because it has been a family business and he has always liked the good smell of flowers. In the future, he plans to attract more clients and expand his business.
