Haidar's story

Haidar is a 36-year-old man who lives in Bourj el Barajneh, the southern suburbs of Lebanon, with his wife and their five children. Haidar has owned a bakery since 2004. He sells mankoucheh and is known for his good and very tasty mankoucheh. A mankoucheh looks like a folded pizza, and the most common toppings are zaatar (thyme), jebneh (cheese) and lahm bi ajin (minced meat). You can eat it anytime of the day, but somehow it tastes better in the morning.

Haidar requested a loan of 1000 US dollars from Al Majmoua in order to do some maintenance on his shop, like painting, buying new ingredients for making his mankoucheh, and also for paying the school tuition fees for his children. This is the first time that he has requested a loan.

In the beginning, he faced a difficulty which was the lack of cash, but now that he knows how to treat his clients well, he has improved a lot in his work.
