Ali is a 25-year-old, single man, who works hard to support five other members of his family. Ali studied accounting in a technical school, but unfortunately he couldn't find a suitable job that can fulfill his family's increasing needs. That is why in 2011 he established his own mobile phone shop after working for one year in the field; he found that he is capable of managing his own business. Ali is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to increase his business merchandise with newly released mobile phone accessories and prepaid cards, which will increase his sales and develop both his business and his family's living conditions. Ali is working hard to keep on developing his business in a well-managed way in order to start selling computers and their accessories.
