Abed Al Nasser
Abed A. Nasser is a 50-year-old married man and father of three children. He has worked in construction for the last 35 years, and was very young when he started working. Unlike his friends, he had to help in his family's income instead of enjoying teenager's games and conversations.

Abed A. Nasser misses his childhood a lot. He works hard on providing the best for his kids, and makes sure that they will enjoy their childhood through working hard on improving his business and increasing his income to cover their expenses.

Abed A. Nasser is specialized in pasting tiles and polishing them. He uses a generator to provide himself with electricity since it is a major problem in Lebanon. He needs to cut tiles through a specialized electric cutter, which will help in finishing his business in a short period of time with the best quality provided.

Through requesting a loan from A. Majmoua, Abed A. Nasser will be capable of fixing his generator, because it is not working as it should be, and this will affect his business a lot, since he'll be late in finishing most of his work.

Abed A. Nasser can't imagine his business without having an engine that makes his life easier as he describes it. Abed A. Nasser hopes to open his own company in the future that deals with all types of construction.
