Faysal has owned and operated a grocery store for over ten years where he sells candies, soft drinks and more. He requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase merchandise for his store. With this loan he plans to diversify his merchandise and increase his stock so that he can answer his clients’ needs. This is his second loan and he has always repaid on time. His previous loan allowed him to increase his products.
Faysal decided on doing his business because he wanted to have independent work. When he first started his work, he had some financial issues because he couldn’t afford to buy and offer a big quantity of merchandise. For the future, he hopes that he will keep on expanding his work, as well as improving his financial situation.
