A loan helped To purchase raw materials for his bakery.
Hassan is a 29-year-old man who lives in Tyre, in southern Lebanon, with his wife and their child. Hassan has owned a bakery for seven years. He has been selling mankoucheh. Mankoucheh looks like a folded pizza. The most common toppings are zaatar (thyme), jebneh (cheese) and lahm bi ajin (minced meat). You can eat it any time of the day, but somehow it tastes better in the morning. Hassan is special in his work because he is known for his good and tasty mankoucheh. He has requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase raw materials for his bakery. Hassan has been a microcredit client for five years now and has always paid on time. Hassan is exceptional in his work because he knows how to treat his clients. His clients are his family members, friends and neighbors. When he first started his business, he didn’t have a lot of cash, as well as not a lot of passersby. He decided to open his business because of his experience; he learned these skills when he was young. In the future, he plans on improving his business.
