Because of his love for his work, Wissam mastered the Couches reupholstering business, working from his shop in Rusaifeh. Despite the many challenges he faces, including the standard of living for his low-income community, not to mention how daunting and exhausting his job is, keeping him away for long hours a day from his family.
Wissam obtained funding from Microfund for Women to grow and expand his shop and buy some machines to help him reduce time and effort and thus cost. He has two employees working with him at his shop. He aspires to grow more and start offering fabric services to his customers, not just reupholstering.
