Bilal is a 41-year-old married man, the father of three kids. He has specialized in making the tastiest Arabic sweets ever for the past 25 years. His father's shop opened in 1973 and he inherited the business. His sweets are like homemade ones; they are tasty and smell great. Everyone in the region is his client, in addition to relatives, friends, friends of friends, and passersby.

Bilal is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua for the sixth time. All his previous loans were for improving his business and had great impact. He has been a great borrower, since his repayment history is perfect. This time the loan isn't for his business – it's requested to pay for his children's school fees. He hopes to provide the best education for his children; one that he couldn't get.
