Arkan's story

Arkan is a 32-year-old married man. He sells fuel and oil products to households, bakeries, and laboratories in the Aley area of Lebanon. This is Arkan’s first loan request from Al Majmoua. The loan will help him purchase fuel and expand his activity. Arkan will also use this loan to purchase a small pick-up truck for his business, of which he is the sole proprietor. At the beginning, one of the most difficult challenges facing Arkan was building a clientele, but his love for his job and his customers’ faith in his experience, after having tried his products, was his strong point. Arkan managed to earn good capital, allowing him to purchase a sufficient amount of goods. In the future, he aspires to own a large fuel station.
