Ali is a 34 year old man who lives in Saida, southern Lebanon, with his wife and their two children. Ali has owned a restaurant since 2002. He sells chicken and chicken sandwiches. Ali requested a loan from A. Majmoua in order to purchase chicken for his restaurant. This is his fourth cycle and he has always paid on time. His previous loans helped improve his work by enlarging his restaurant and offering new platters.

Ali is speciA. in his work because he knows how to cook his chicken and he is known for that; apparently, he has a sort of a secret homemade cooking recipe for his chicken which gives it a speciA. taste and that’s why his clients like going to his restaurant. His clients are his friends, neighbors and others. Ali decided on this business because he learned it when he was young with his uncle. In the future, he plans on improving his business and maybe opening a second restaurant.
