A loan of $1,000 helped to obtain new goods for his grocery store.

Rakan's story

Rakan is 62 years old and works selling foods, groceries and canned food items, etc. He has 19 years of experience in his work. He is married and has four children. He works very hard and likes to work. He continually strives to develop his business. He would like to increase the income of his family, and to improve their material situation and social status. His business stands out from others because he offers all of the needed items in his region. With a loan from al-Majmoua, he would like to buy new goods for his store. The only difficulty he faces in his business is a lack of capital, and this is what hinders him from developing his business.
