Ali is a 41-year-old married man, who has been working as a taxi driver for 11 years. In 2006, Ali was able to buy an old car and work on it.
It is his only source of income. That's why he has to take good care of it.
To do so, Ali applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to change his car's engine to keep it in good shape. This is Ali's third cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. All his previous loans were invested in improving his car's condition. He was a borrower in good standing as well.
Ali dreams of buying a new car in the future to avoid further mechanical problems.
