Ali is a 24-year-old single man. He has owned a special tannour bread bakery since January 2011, having had seven years of experience in this field. Tannour bread is made in a clay oven called a tannour. This technique is still being used in some traditional bakeries, just like the one Ali owns, and that's what gives his business a special place among competitors.

Ali is a hard worker, and he works his best to improve his business as much as he can. He plans to make a small happy family in the future, but today all he is looking forward to is expanding his business as much as possible. To do this, he has asked for Kiva partner Al Majmoua's help, requesting a loan in order to buy the necessary flour and diesel for his business at the special price he can get by paying his bills in cash.

Ali is planning to expand the business and to add a special menu to his business.
