One of his children is enrolled in a private college, which means that Maamoun has to settle the tuition fees expenses on top of all the other family expenses.
Maamoun decided to contact Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development and acquire a loan in order to purchase a water pond that would help him irrigate the fields of his business. It would increase his output and thus increase his revenue. As for the future, Maamoun wishes to dedicate himself to farming.
