Ali's story

Ali is a special-needs client from Iraq. He is a 40-year-old married man with four children. Ali is a beekeeper and he raises honey bees. He got this profession from his father a long time ago. Now he has great experience and a good reputation in the surrounding area. Ali applied for a loan of $3,000 USD to buy hives and build a roof. He aims to grow his business and buy more hives to increase his production. Then he will be able to increase his profits, which will help him to have better living standards and a bigger house.
