Haisam is a 22-year-old man who lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon.

Haisam has owned a hairdressing salon for almost two years now. He also does makeup, tattoos and hair removal, and sells beauty products. He is special in his work because he knows how to treat his customers and his clients feel comfortable going to his salon since he offers a lot of services. But most importantly, he is good in his work and is aware of the new hairstyle fashions.

When Haisam first started his business, he didn’t face difficulties, especially since he already had faithful customers from his previous job. He decided on doing his business because he wanted to have independent work. His clients are his friends, neighbors and tourists.

Haisam has requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase beauty products and to make some décor changes. This is the first time that he has requested a loan. In the future, he plans on expanding his business.
