Habib is a 54-year-old married father of five children. He owns a small convenience store where he has sold food, fruits and vegetables for a year. He used to work as a security man, but his age and the need to settle down encouraged him to start his own business. His wife is unemployed, and one of his five children is enrolled in public school. He is the only financial provider of the family, and his income is extremely low and does not suffice to provide for a family of seven individuals.

Habib contacted Al Majmoua to acquire a loan and purchase an ice cream freezer and ice cream in order to cope with the summer demand. This might enhance his income for this season. As for the future, he wishes to expand his shop.
