In 2009, he decided to get involved in the car-trading business. Because of his negotiating talent and skills and his friendly personality, he was able to succeed in this domain. However, his financial results are barely permitting him to cover the high cost of living, which is why he has been working in the internal security forces, to be able to enhance his family’s standard of living.
