Hussein is a 45-year-old married man living in Nabatieh with his wife and 6 children. Hussein owns a shop where he has been selling chickens since 2005. He has 11 years of experience in this field. Hussein works hard to improve his business because it's his only source of income.

Hussein is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua in order to buy a bigger generator for his shop, since the electricity problem is becoming more complicated day by day in the region. Hussein's clients are most of his neighbors, relatives and friends. They state that his quality of products is better than competitors in the region.

Hussein hopes to open a farm of his own where he can raise his own chickens to trade with.
