Youssef is 22 years old and unmarried. He works in the home tile business. He has seven years of experience in this field. He is trying to develop his business and improve his financial situation and social status, as well as the financial situation and social status of his family, as he has a very good relationship with his family and provides them with all of their material needs. He stands out in his field due to his experience and skill; however, what is hindering his progress in his business is a lack of capital. He needs capital in order to progress in his business and develop himself financially and socially. He has customers from his community and his neighborhood. With a loan from al-Majmoua, he would like to buy a truck (model "Rapid") to use in his work, as well as new equipment to expand his business. He is ambitious and wants to build a good future for himself, similarly as he wants to start a close-knit family on a strong financial foundation.
