Abdel Halim contacted Al Majmoua because he needs to enhance and expand his business, which he started only two years ago. In fact, he needs the loan to purchase the summer collection and raise his revenue.

As for the future, Abdel Halim hopes to further develop his business by setting up an appropriate decor that would be suitable to the merchandise he offers.
