Ismail is a 38-year-old single man living in a village in the Bekaa valley. He owns a small garage where he maintains and paints cars. His income is barely sufficient to provide for one person, which is why he needs to enhance his business if he wishes to settle down and build a family.

He has contacted Al Majmoua and requested a loan that would help him achieve his wishes. In fact, this loan would enable him to buy a new work kit that would be up-to-date with the new technologies on the market.

As for the future, Ismail hopes to boost his business by expanding the garage.
