Ali's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy 70 inner tubes and alloy rims for bicycles, in order to take care of his children.

Ali's story

Ali is father to four children, two of whom go to school. He is a mechanic and has opened a workshop selling spare parts in a market in the outskirts of the capital, which he has been managing for the past eight years.

He is on his third loan cycle with Yikri and repaid his first Kiva loan without any difficulty. He is requesting a new loan to buy 70 inner tubes and 35 alloy rims for bicycles to resell to his customers. He would like to use the profits from this to reinvest in his business and save money to take care of his children. Finally he thanks Yikri and its partners.
