A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fruits, vegetables and seasonal items to sell to his customers.


Ali's story

Ali is a 31-year-old single man who has earned a living by selling fruits and vegetables for the last 21 years. He was very young when he started working because he needed to help his parents make a living. He missed having a childhood and has not married because he wants to make sure that his income can cover all of his future family's expenses.

In 2000, Ali opened his own shop and is doing really well. He hopes to expand it so that he can make plans for his future. He is a hard worker with a good reputation, and puts a lot of effort into satisfying his customers and winning their loyalty. He is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy more fruits, vegetables and special seasonal products to sell to his customers. This is his second loan from Al Majmoua, and he paid his first one back completely and on time.
