Ali's Group's story

Ali is a 22-year-old, young, hardworking Iraqi man from an area still considered a conflict zone. He is married and a father of 2 children. Growing up with a farming family, he knows hard work and has been working since his childhood.

He now has 10 years of experience with herding and raising cows to sell. The more young animals he can buy at the same time and raise simultaneously, the more income he can generate, as there is a high demand for the cows for their meat.

He is taking a group loan from Relief International Microfinance Iraq to be able to purchase more young animals.

Relief International - Microfinance Iraq offers "Group loans" for clients unable to provide a guarantor - thereby unable to apply for a loan as an individual. As a group, the members collectively guarantee the loan. Groups consist of 3 to 5 clients and each client is evaluated on his or her repayment capacity. All group members receive the same loan amount as the individual with the lowest repayment capacity in the group.

In this group: Ali , Hussin , Kasin
