Ali, a 32-year-old man who lives in Bint Jbeil, southern Lebanon with his wife and their two children, has owned a barber shop since 2000. When he first started his business, he had difficulty finding the proper place to open his shop. He decided to work as a hairdresser because he had gained experience in his previous work. In the future, he plans to keep on improving his work.

This is his third loan cycle and he has always paid on time. His previous loans helped him to purchase tools for his work as well as improve his barber shop. Ali is now requesting a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase an electric motor and a washing chair for his salon.
