Ali's story

Ali is a 28-year-old, married man, who has been working in construction for six years. He has been expanding his business since then. In 2011 he began sharing a shop, where he stores his tools and materials. Ali works on a freelance basis, contracting various building jobs while employing two construction workers to assist him. Due to his good borrowing experience with Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, Ali is applying for another Youth Loan, which he will invest in buying wood and iron pillars. Ali has a wide experience in his field, and he is determined to expand his business into an independent, fully-fledged construction contracting workshop.
