Alwan is a 24-year-old married young adult, living with his wife on a farm in the Bekaa valley.

He trades and sells sheep for a living, as well as sheep cheese, milk and wool. His wife is a housewife and is currently unemployed, which means that his small business is the family's only financial resource.

He graduated from a vocational school. In order to establish a family and have children, he believes that he should expand his small business and enlarge the farm.

Thus, he contacted Al Majmoua in order to acquire a YOUTH loan and purchase sheep, nurture them and then sell them in order to raise revenue. This might help him settle down and open up a bigger farm.
