Ali Omar's story

Ali Omar is a Somalian entrepreneur working in Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya. He runs a grocery shop that has different products that are requested at the market. Ali Omar is also a refugee who left his home country due to mass killings. As a father of 10, he knew he had to think of ways to earn extra income so with the help of his savings from a previous business back home he was able to start another one in the camp. The grocery store has helped him support his family financially. However, he constantly runs out of stock so he is requesting a loan to help him purchase more inventory for his grocery store. He sees that his business will grow; that is why he joined the AEC Kenya program to gain more knowledge on how to run a business.
