Merwan's story

Merwan is a 44-year-old husband and father of three who has worked as a mechanic for the past decade. His customers comprise relatives, friends, and others from the Aley district, where he is well-known and stands out from other competitors thanks to his formidable auto-repair skills. In addition to paying off excessive schooling debts, Merwan is applying for his first loan from Al-Majmoua in order to update some of the manual equipment in his workshop as well as to expand his business by adding electrical maintenance and oil-changing to his repertoire.
