A loan of $1,800 helped to buy a pickup for his business.

Shadi's story

Shadi is a 37-year-old married man living in Lebanon with his wife and four children. Shadi has worked in a few occupations -- trading charcoal and wood, decorating glass with sand, and as a farmer -- for 13 years. Shadi believes that, in Lebanon, you have to work at multiple things in order to insure a good living for your family.

This is Shadi’s fifth loan cycle with Al Majmoua and he proved to be a trusted person. This time Shadi is requesting a loan in order to buy a pickup for his business so he can do his work in an easier and faster way.

Shadi hopes to widen his work in all sectors and benefit his family members through working with him.
