Omar, a 50-year-old married father of two children, works hard for the sake of his family, operating more than one business at a time. Omar has worked in the construction field since 1980, selling stone rocks that are highly valued in his business for the exterior beauty they provide buildings. He also works in agriculture, planting and selling apples and kidney beans. He has also started a bread business.

A borrower in good standing, Omar is now requesting his second loan from Al Majmoua, his first one having enhanced his social and financial situation. The loan will be invested to improve his bread business, through buying big quantities and selling them in a wider region. Omar hopes to keep on expanding his businesses in order to continue raising his children in a healthy and educated environment.
