Ali's story

Ali is a 26-year-old single man who opened his own bakery four years ago. He is well-known in his region with the good reputation he has, in addition to the special products he serves.

Ali is acquiring a youth loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy necessary raw materials for his business development, such as cheese, thyme and flour, in addition to a power generator and necessary bakery items such as paper bags and cleaning supplies.

Ali is working hard to develop his bakery, which is specialized in producing the traditional Lebanese Manakish (a folded dough with special toppings served during the day, especially for breakfast).

He is working hard to expand his bakery to attract new customers and increase his income. He might open a special zone for eat-in services.
