Shawki is a 55-year-old man who lives in Bint Jbeil, southern Lebanon with his wife and their six children. Shawki has been working in agriculture; he owns livestock. He produces milk and cheese.

Shawki is exceptional in his work because he is known for his good production. His clients are people from his region. When he first started his business, he had to face competition, since in his region there is a lot of agriculture and livestock, so he had to make himself known to the public.

Shawki decided on this business because of his experience. He requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to increase his livestock so that he would be able to increase his milk and cheese production and therefore, his income. This is his second loan cycle and he has always paid on time.

In the future, he plans to keep on expanding his work by producing more.
