Ghanem is a twenty-three-year-old single man living in Chehour, Southern Lebanon. Ghanem, like many other people, has been active in doing several jobs to improve his financial situation. Therefore, he has been working since 2003 as a house painter, as a school bus driver, as the owner of a mini-market, and as an employee in an orphans' association since 2008. Ghanem requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to pay the remaining expenses for his bus driving job, which will help him increase his income during the summer season, when tourism increases. Ghanem’s clients are the local villagers and people from the neighboring villages. He hopes to reach a level where he can prove himself in interior design and can stop doing the other jobs.
