After 20 years of experience working on the sea has become an integrA. part of his life; fishing is his favourite and only hobby. Eid has requested a first-time loan to buy new equipment for his work, such as fishnets and other tools. Eid is an active wholesale fishmonger and his clients are retail fishmongers. He occasionally sells retail to his neighbours and relatives. One of the key problems that he faced during his business startup was a lack of experience. Although business was hard at first, he later started to excel. His love for fishing and, more specifically, for the sea were among the main reasons for developing his business. Eid seeks to develop his business and to buy bigger fishing boats in the near future.
