A loan of $1,000 helped to buy mobile phones and mobile phone accessories for his mobile phone store.


Hachem's story

Hachem is 51 years old and married with four children. He works selling mobile phones and mobile phone accessories. He has ten years of experience in this line of work. He has customers from his community, from among his neighbors, and from among the residents of his town. With a loan from al-Majmoua, he would like to buy goods for his store, such as mobile phones and mobile phone accessories. He has a good history in his mobile phone business, and he is always striving to develop his store. However, what is hindering him from doing this is the competition in his community, for there are many mobile phone stores in his community. He would like to stand out in his sector of the market so that he can continue to compete in the mobile phone business. Hachem consistently desires to develop himself and secure a good life for himself, as well as improve his children's material situation and social status.
