Ali's story

Ali has had a previous loan with Kiva, which he repaid without any challenges. Ali is single businessman who lives in the Changamwe area of Mombasa, Kenya. He operates a retail shop where he resides. He has ambitions of owning rental houses in the future and tapping income from the houses. He knew Milango through friends and now seeks a loan to buy 10 bags of sugar, five bags of rice and 10 jerricans of cooking oil. The major challenges that he faces are price fluctuations and high transportation costs. The extra income that will be raised from the loan will help him improve his standards of living.
