A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase raw materials for his work.


Abd's story

Abd is a 41-year-old man who lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, with his wife and their five children. Abd sells “falafel” sandwiches. Falafel is a fried ball or patty made from spiced chickpeas and/or fava beans. Originally from Egypt, falafel is a popular form of fast food in the Middle East, where it is also served as a mezze (hors d'oeuvres). Abd is special in his work because he is known for his sandwiches. His clients are his friends, neighbors and tourists. He requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase raw materials for his work. Abd has been a microcredit client for ten years now and has always paid on time. His previous loans allowed him to continually improve his work. When he first started his business, he didn’t face difficulties. He decided on doing his business because he wanted to have independent work, and he opened a falafel place because it is one of his favorite foods. In the future, he plans on expanding his business.
