Alaa is 30 years old and lives in Beirut with his wife. He makes a living running a small coffee shop where he works hard to make his clients, who are also his friends and neighbors, feel comfortable. Alaa enjoys his work because it allows him to be independent and takes advantage of his experience working in other coffee shops. He has applied for this loan from Al Majmoua to buy a new espresso machine and other items he needs for his business. This is his third loan application, and he has paid his prior two loans on time. His goal for the future is to enlarge his shop.
