Moussa has owned a barber shop since 2000. He also sells hair products like shampoos and gel, and perfumes. He is a 22-year-old man who lives in Saida, southern Lebanon with his wife and their child. Moussa knows how to treat his clients and does good work. His clients are his friends, neighbors and others. When he first started his business, he didn’t have enough cash to purchase all the needed tools for his shop. Moussa decided on this business because he wanted to have independent work and he learned it in an academy.

Moussa requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to repaint his shop and purchase accessories. This is his second loan cycle and he has always repaid on time. In the future, he plans on improving his business by purchasing more sophisticated tools.
