Kamal requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to buy important merchandise and raw materials for his business, and is planning to use a small part for his small wedding. Kamal believes that supporting his work will increase his income and help him financially. His clients are passers by, his relatives, his neighbors, and residents of neighboring villages. Kamal hopes to one day own a big garage where he can do car maintenance and repairs at the same time and in the same place.
