A loan of $1,000 helped set up own electrician's shop.

Hasan's story

Hasan is a 43-year-old husband and father-of-three who receives a lot of support from his family and who in turn wants to make sure that his children are given an excellent education. For the past fifteen years, Hasan has worked as an itinerant electrician for homes and offices, a field which he finds engaging. He is now seeking a loan from Al Majmoua to set up his own electrician’s shop so that he can achieve some sort of stability. Although he is very well-liked by his customers, he nevertheless faces stiff competition given that he is operating in a working-class district; hence he needs more capital to be able to rise above the rest.
