Mahmoud is a 29-year-old man who lives in Saida, in southern Lebanon. Mahmoud has been working as a sewer since 1996. He repairs and produces all types of clothes. Mahmoud decided on this business because he wanted to have independent work and likes sewing. He is exceptional in his work because he knows how to treat his clients and does a good job. His clients are his friends, neighbors and others. However, at first he had some difficulty building networking, to make himself known to the public.

Mahmoud requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase a new sewing machine for his work, which will allow him to improve his productivity. This is the first time that Mahmoud has requested a loan. In the future, he plans on expanding his business.
