Charles is a 31 year-old man living with his wife and only child.

He earns his living by transporting people across his home town city in his taxi. His wife works as a mobile housekeeper and has a very low income, which renders their socioeconomic status very low.

Nevertheless, they enrolled their child in a private school, in order to secure his future for him to overcome the poverty they live in. Charles contacted Al Majmoua because he wishes to acquire a small loan that would enable him to buy a new refrigerator and pay for car maintenance expenses.

In fact, maintaining his car is highly important for him to increase his customer base and thus his revenue, which would alleviate the tuition fees' burden.

As for the future, Charles wishes to purchase his own license plate.
