Three of his children are enrolled in public schools, while his oldest son studies at a private technical school. Youssef can barely provide for the food expenses of the family, which means that any other additional expense is a burden.
Thus, he decided to contact Al Majmoua and acquire a loan in order to settle the tuition fees of his son, Ahmad, who was born in 1995 and is in his last academic year studying computer science, on top of maintaining the family car. As for the future, Youssef hopes to launch his own concrete business and become the owner of it.
