A loan of $1,700 helped to buy leather to produce new shoes.


Ali's story

Ali is a 61-year-old married father of five children.

He has been working in a shoe-making business for 42 years. He is an expert in his business, which is his only source of income.

Ali is dedicated to his business, but because of his family's increasing needs, he couldn't afford to develop his factory and buy new updated machines.

Ali produces shoes that his machines are capable of, and he is proud of his production. He knows his market very well, and works upon request.

Today, he is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to buy leather to produce a new shoe collection.

He is anxious about this loan, and it will be his fifth cycle loan from Al Majmoua. All of his previous loans were invested in covering his business needs, and he is happy with the outcomes.
