A loan of $5,450 helped to purchase a slow burner rotisserie for his halal restaurant.


Ali's story

Ali came to the US over 20 years ago from Palestine, where he owned his own printing company. In the states, he began working in the restaurant industry through family and friends. Ali decided to branch out on his own and open King’s Restaurant, serving authentic halal fare in Newark, NJ.

King’s Restaurant is a family business, and Ali’s son and daughter are heavily involved in the business. The customer service and excellent quality food set Ali’s restaurant apart from other restaurants.

The funds from this loan will go toward purchasing a slow burner to offer rotisserie chicken at the restaurant. Ali also plans on expanding and opening another restaurant in a different location. Eventually, he would like to open other businesses, including a cyber café. Ali’s ultimate goal is to be able to employ others and provide jobs.
