Ahmad is a 53 year-old married father of three children. He has a garage where he conducts metal work and painting. He has been working in this field for 35 years now. His wife is unemployed, which renders him as the only financial provider of the family. His income is not enough to provide for his wife and three children.

The highest education his parents could afford to give him was elementary school which has narrowed his scope of opportunities. He contacted Al Majmoua because his son is getting married soon. In fact, he needs to acquire a loan in order to alleviate the burden of the ceremony's costs, and in order to help his son decorate his bedroom in his new apartment. As for the future, Ahmad wishes to expand his work by enlarging the department he works in, or by opening up a new garage.
