Yaacoub owns a sawmill, which belonged to his father since 1985, and he has 15 years of experience in this field.
Yaakoub’s business is doing well since most of his clients dealt with his father at the beginning and are still dealing with him because of the good reputation he inherited. His clients are everyone in need of such service.
Yaakoub is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua in order to pay for a requested wood order. His family is living fine, since he works hard to provide them with what they need. Yaakoub hopes to buy a wood compressor in the future.
