Houssein is a 25-year-old man who lives in Tyre in southern Lebanon with his wife. Houssein has owned an Internet shop for a year and a half. He also offers computer games and serves coffee. Houssein's business is special because he has a good relationship with his clients, who are his friends and neighbors.

When Houssein first started his business, he didn’t have the necessary start up capital. He went ahead with the business because he wanted to be independent. He has requested a loan of 1000 US dollars from Al Majmoua to purchase an Internet machine, so he can sell Internet services to individuals. This is the first time that Houssein has requested a loan. In the future, he plans on improving and expanding his business.
