Bahija, a 50 year-old married mother of three children, lives in a small village in the south of Lebanon with her family. She and her husband both own a grocery shop where they sell and trade all kinds of vegetables. The grocery store is their only source of financial revenue, which is why enhancing it means raising their revenues. Thus, Bahija contacted Al Majmoua because she decided to acquire a loan and purchase merchandise for her store, as well as maintain the family car. In the future, she wishes to enlarge the grocery shop.
