Hussein is 34 years old, married and the father of two small children. For the last 14 years, he has earned a living by selling books and stationary in a store his father opened many years ago and worked very hard to improve. Today, the business is Hussein's major source of income and one reason why he is a loyal Al Majmoua borrower. He has taken out and repaid 10 previous loans, and has a reputation as a responsible and hard-working businessman. He is committed to provide his children with a good life and a top-notch education, and is applying for a new loan to make sure his store has the books and stationary required by most schools in his area. Hussein hopes to expand his business in the future by opening a second location.
