Hussein, a 48-year-old married father of three children, has owned and operated with the help of his wife a small restaurant since 2005. Hussein sells chicken and Falafel sandwiches, the latter of which "can be served as veggie burgers too since they have the same shape but instead of meat, pork, fish or chicken, they are made of ground broad beans and chickpeas with special herbs and spices to provide a special flavor". His customers can be both local villagers and foreigners passing through to other villages.

Working hard on improving his business, Hussein has requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to buy a grill and a freezer for his restaurant. The grill will help him cook special chicken sandwiches with various flavors, and the freezer will help to preserve the freshness of his Falafel mixture for several days.

Hussein's plans for expansion including enlarging his restaurant in order to accommodate more customers.
