Ibrahim is a 35-year-old man who lives in Bint Jbeil, southern Lebanon, with his wife and their three children. Ibrahim has owned a butcher shop for over fifteen years. When he first started his business, he had some financial issues due to the cost of his machines, the rent, and other expenses related to his shop, but he always did his best to manage and not to have debts.

He decided on opening his shop because he realized that there wasn’t a butcher shop in his region and that people had to go a bit far from their home to purchase their meat. Ibrahim is special in his work because he is known for his good quality meat. He requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase cows for his business. This is the first time that Ibrahim has requested a loan.

His clients are his friends, neighbors and people from his region. In the future, he plans on expanding his business by working in surrounding villages.
