Fady, 44, lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, with his wife and their two children. Fady has been working as a car repairer since 2006. His clients are his friends and neighbors. When he first started his business, he said that, as with every startup business, he had some difficulties, but nothing to talk about. He decided to start his own business because of his experience, his enjoyment of this trade and his desire for independent work. He has requested his first loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase tools for his garage. In the future, he plans on improving his business.
