Ali is a 38-year-old married man and the father of four children. Ali is a hardworking man. Fifteen years ago he opened a grocery store in his village to make his living. His family's needs became bigger, and the need for additional income was urgent; that's why he started working as a bus driver, making sure to take almost all the village students from and to the school. Ali is also a builder — three businesses to cover his family's needs, and still they need more.

Ali is planning to expand and improve his grocery store to keep it suitable for his customers and help increase its income. That's why he applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy necessary merchandise for his shop, in addition to making small decorations to make a small change to his shop.

Ali is a man with a very good reputation, loved by most of his customers.

He is willing to expand all his businesses to provide his family with the best living conditions.
