Elyas is a 42-year-old married man. He has owned a sports-clothing shop since 2005 and has many years of experience in this occupation. He sells all type of sports clothes and shoes, as well as sports accessories.

When he first started, Elyas challenged some financial issues. He decided on opening his shop because he saw a need in his region for such a shop. His clients can be anyone, but mainly they are his friends and neighbors.

Elyas has already taken advantage of a first loan from Al Majmoua and he's pleased with his decision to take his second. He has been very punctual with his repayments and has repaid his entire loan on time.

Today, Elyas has chosen to take a new loan of $3,000 to increase his selection of sports clothes in order to increase his sales and so his income. He hopes to further expand his business by opening a second sports shop.
