Hadi's story

Hadi is a 26-year-old husband and father of two who loves his family very much and seeks to improve their financial situation; they, for their part, are a big support to him. Hadi has been self-reliant for the past nine years as he’s worked at a fateera pastry shop. He is seeking a loan from Al Majmoua to open a new shop to expand his business. Hadi is well-liked by his colleagues and patrons. He is very driven, and dreams of opening up multiple other outlets in the future. His credit history with Al Majmoua is very good.
