Hamza's story

Hamza is a 42 year old man who lives in the Bekaa with his wife and their four children. Hamza has owned a bakery for eight years. He does saj and mankoucheh. The saj is a metA. oven where you do the saj bread or a traditionA. Lebanese cooking dome used to make markouk (flatbread) and doughy confections or mankoucheh. A mankoucheh looks like a folded pizza. The most common toppings are za'atar (thyme), jebneh (cheese) and lahm bi ajin (minced meat). You can eat it anytime of the day, but somehow it tastes better in the morning.
Hamza is speciA. in his work because he knows how to treat his clients and makes good mankoucheh. His clients are his friends and neighbors. When he first started his business, he didn’t face difficulties. He decided on this work because he wanted to improve his financiA. situation.

Hamza requested a loan of $2000 US from A. Majmoua in order to purchase ingredients for his bakery and to pay his children's school tuition. This is his third loan and he has always repaid on time. His previous loans helped him to improve his bakery with the purchase of a new oven. In the future, he plans on expanding his business.
