Hussein is a 57-year-old married man. He is a father of three children, and has worked as a blacksmith since 25 years ago.

Hussein is an expert in his field; he is a hard worker who devotes his whole life for the sake of his family and business. Hussein improves himself and his work a lot; he works hard on it all the time, especially through updating his tools and machines used. That's why he requested a loan from Al Majmoua to buy new tools necessary to make his work easy and with good quality.

Hussein has been an Al Majmoua borrower for two consecutive loan cycles, with a good history. He has a good quality of work with the best price given. Hussein is also going to help his son with building his house.

He hopes he can expand his shop more in the future to take more requested projects.
