Abbass's story

Abbass is a 39-year-old man who lives in Bint Jbeil, southern Lebanon with his wife and their two children. Abbass has owned a bakery since 1998. He sells mankoucheh and pizzas. A Mankoucheh looks like a folded pizza. The 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. Ali is special in his work because he is known for his good and tasty mankoucheh. Abbass also does Lebanese pastries like “Fatayers” which are spiced triangular spinach pies stuffed with meat and onions; “Manakich” which are pastries baked with thyme, olive oil, spices and sesame seed; “Sfiha” which are pies made from our own fresh dough topped with spicy ground lamb meat, onions and tomatoes. When he first started his business, he passed through some financial issues and took loans at Al Majmoua. This is his third loan and he has always paid on time. He requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase raw materials and gas for his oven. His clients are his friends, neighbors and people from his region. He plans to keep on improving his work and offering the best to his clients.
