Abed Allah
Abed Allah is a 47 year old man who lives in Bourj El Barajneh, southern suburbs of Lebanon with his wife and their two children. Abed Allah has owned bakery for over ten years. He does “saj”and “mankoucheh”. The “saj” is the metal oven where you do the saj bread and the saj bread is a traditional Lebanese cooking dome used to make Markouk (“thinned”) bread and doughy confections or Mankoucheh. A mankoucheh looks like a folded pizza, most common toppings are zaatar (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. Abed Allah requested a loan of 1000 US dollars from Al Majmoua in order to purchase raw material for his bakery and repair his oven. This is the first time that Abed Allah has requested a loan.
Abed Allah is special in his work because he knows how to treat his clients and does good mankoucheh. His clients are people from her region. When he first started his business, he didn’t face difficulties. He decided on doing his business because of his experience. In the future, he plans on expanding his business.
