Marwan is a 29-year-old married man living with his wife, Fatima, in Chtaura. Marwan has worked as a car repairer since 2000, specializing in bodywork. He is a expert in his field and anyone can see that the moment they see his work.

This is the first time that Marwan has requested a loan from A. Majmoua. He plans to buy an important steel welding machine which now comes in a new version: it’s known as a cold-welding machine, not like the regular one.

Marwan’s clients could be anyone: friends, neighbors, villagers, or friends of friends. His first obstacle was that people didn’t notice the location of his shop as it’s not on the main road: you have to search for it. However, this obstacle does not exist anymore as he’s kind of becoming famous.

Marwan states that he doesn’t have any other job, as he was raised to do this – his father is a car painter. His dream is to own his shop as it’s currently rented.
