Abass is a 33-year-old single man from Bint Jbeil who has been working in construction since 2000. He specializes in cement work. Abass is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua for the first time to buy a crane that will make his work easier. Abass's first loan was of good benefit for his business and he hopes that this one has the same or greater benefit. What's special is that he doesn't limit himself to cement construction but also works in almost every kind of maintenance. His clients enjoy working with him; most of them agree that what keeps them dealing with him is his personality and joyful sense of humor. He's fast and works strictly to his due dates to meet the clients' demands. In the future he hopes to own his own construction machines, in particular a cement mixer.
