A loan of $1,800 helped to buy new and improved tools necessary for his business.

Ali's story

Ali is a 33-year-old married man and father of two children. He has been working in construction for 16 years, especially in the electricity sector.

He is a hard worker, liked by most of his customers who admire his work a lot and his good personality. Ali is a clever man who works hard to improve his business as much as he can, through updating his tools and machines.

Ali is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy necessary tools for his business, in addition to closing his house's porch with special glass curtains to give extra space for his kids to share at home. He has received an Al Majmoua loan before, and it had a positive effect on both his social and financial situations. This time he hopes that through the requested loan, he will be capable of handling big projects requested of him. He also hopes he can provide his family with the best living ever.
