Alaa is a hard-working man, liked by most of his customers. His good reputation differentiates him from competitors, and this is his speciA. advantage.

To improve his living and to increase his income, Alaa thought of establishing a new business that is attractive to most teenaged villagers: he will open an internet café, which will help them in spending useful time in their spare time and it will help in keeping them away from bad habits such as drugs and many others through a loan he applied for from Kiva partner A. Majmoua.

Alaa hopes to improve both businesses more and more in the future and to continue having customers trust him.
