Baker has owned a home products store for eleven years, selling home products and cleaning supplies. He is outstanding in his work because he knows how to treat his clients and offers a large variety of products. His clients are his friends, neighbors and others. When he first started his business, he didn’t have a lot of cash and there were not a lot of passer-bys. Baker decided on this business because he wanted to work independently and likes sales.

Baker is a 45 year old man who lives in Saida, Southern Lebanon with his wife and their two children. He requested a loan of $1300 US from Al Majmoua in order to purchase merchandise for his business. This is his second loan cycle and he has always repaid on time. In the future, he plans on expanding his business.
