Ahmad's previous loans helped him start a new business selling scrap metal. This second business is a way to improve his income. Ahmad is an active man who does his best to improve his family's financial situation, and he even said that if he had more time, he would consider starting a third job.
Ahmad is special in his work, because his clients feel comfortable coming to his shop and enjoying a nice coffee or drink with their narguileh. His clients are his friends, neighbors, passersby, and people from his region. When he first started his business, he had difficulty purchasing all the necessary merchandise for his shop. He decided on doing his business, because he wanted to have independent work. In the future, he plans to continue improving his business.
