Mahmoud is a 36 year-old married father of two. He and his family are Palestinian and live in a marginalized Palestinian camp in the South of Lebanon. He has a sandwich shop, and occasionally works as a painter on construction sites. His wife is currently unemployed, which makes him the only financial provider of the family. Both his children are enrolled in private schools, which mean that he has to settle the schooling tuition fees, in addition to his regular family expenses. He decided to acquire a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase a car for his family, which would truly facilitate their lives. His previous loan from Al Majmoua helped him continue to build his house.
