Hussein is a 44-year-old married father of two children. He is a taxi driver and for 22 years he has transported people every day between Lebanon and Syria. His wife is employed in a clothing shop. Both his children are enrolled in a public school because he does not have the sufficient funds to provide them with a better education.

He decided to contact Al Majmoua and acquire a loan in order to purchase furniture for his new livingroom. In fact, this would at least enhance the environment that he and his family live in.

In the future, Hussein wishes to purchase a second car in order to expand his business.
