Salah is 61 years old and married. He owns a bakery, which he has run since 1993. He is well known in the region for his delicious Manakish, a popular Levantine pastry consisting of dough topped with thyme, cheese, or ground meat.

Salah is a hardworking man with a very good reputation. He is applying for a loan from Al Majmoua, which he will use to buy a bigger oven and large quantities of necessary raw materials such as flour, salt, oil, thyme, and cheese.

Salah works hard to keep his products affordable to everyone in his region. He hopes to improve his business in the future by either opening a new branch or adding items to his menu.
