Ahmad is a 46-year-old married father of two children. He works as a public taxi driver and has his own vehicle for the job. He works every day from sunrise, when people rush to get to their work, till night. He has been working in this field for 23 years now. His wife is unemployed, which renders him the only financial provider of the family. One of his children is enrolled in a private school, while the other is enrolled in a public school, which means that he has schooling tuition and fees on top of the other family expenses. Thus, maximizing his revenue is a priority.

He contacted Al Majmoua in order to acquire a loan for the maintenance of his car, and to renovate his house (with paint, electronics, etc.). A loan would alleviate the burden of the other expenses mentioned above. As for the future, Ahmad wishes to buy a new car for his work as a taxi driver in order to increase the number of customers and tourists.
