Abdallah is a 19-year-old man living in the town of Saida in South Lebanon. Abdallah supports his family because his father can no longer work due to his age. Abdallah has been a carpenter for two years, and he recently started a new business.

This is his second loan with A. Majmoua, which he always repaid with timely payments. With his first loan, he built a mini-train that he attached to his motorbike to give little kids rides on the Saida pier. This was the only business of the like in the area. This business has proven to be profitable, and he would like a second loan of $1,000 to create a second mini-train so that he can expand his business to the other parts of the pier.
