Abbas is a 38-year-old married father of three: Moustafa (8), Ahmad (7) and Mohamad (3). He's known as Abou Moustafa is his region. Abbas has been selling lupine seeds, beans, and corn for the last 27 years. Abbas was too small when he started working to help in his family's income and expenses.

He drives his carriage through many villages to sell his tasty cooked beans, corn, and lupine. Most of his customers are attracted to him through their kids who are the first advertisement for this tasty thing to eat.

Abbas's favorite place to sell his goods is beside the seashore where most of the citizens go to spend a pleasurable time with their kids.

Abbas is requesting a loan from A. Majmoua for the fifth time, in order to increase his goods, which will lead to an increase in his income. Abbas stated that he'll buy these goods at a very good price which will help in increasing his profit rate.

Abbas hopes to be able to open a shop beside the seashore so that he can expand his business more and more in the future, and provide his children a happy childhood unlike the one he had.
