Imad is a 48-year-old married father of two children. He works as a cobbler in his own shop, where he fixes shoes and sells others. His wife is unemployed, which means that he is the only financial provider of the family. One of his children is enrolled in a public school, while the other is enrolled in a private school, which means that he has schooling expense fees on top of all the other expenses.

Imad contacted Al Majmoua to acquire a loan in order to purchase shoes that he would then be selling, as well as a new work kit. As for the future, Imad wishes to expand his business by opening up another shop where he would be selling shoes exclusively.
