Ali is a 21-year-old married man who has been working at selling chicken for the past 12 years. Ali was only 9 years old when he started working to help his parents in making their living. His childhood was not impressive, and that is why he opened his own chicken-selling shop in 2008.

Ali is applying for a Youth Loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy the necessary machines requested for his business, including a new, large refrigerator and a new, special chicken-cutting machine, and to perform necessary maintenance on the existing machines and to paint the shop's walls.

Ali is very excited about this loan, since this is the first time he has applied for such a service, and he is willing to invest in a well-managed way.

He hopes to continue expanding his business as much as he can to provide his family with the best living ever, unlike his own.
