“I’ve heard before about the training of Mobile maintenance provided by CEOSS and I’ve never though that I can work in this field, but after the training the situation completely changed,” Mahmoud says.
Mahmoud Bakery Ismail, 24 years old, graduated from Arabic and Islamic studies in 2012. He was a financial partner in one of his friends mobile maintenance shop, while only his friend had the experience. The income was barely covering his basic needs, and when Mahmoud joined military service, the income decreased even more. After finishing the military service he found that the shop debited a lot and decided to break the partnership. He wondered what to do after losing his only source of income.
Later, he heard about free mobile maintenance trainings from the Islamic organization in Minia, in cooperation with CEOSS, and applied to join. After he learned how to maintain cellphone as well as how to deal with customers he rented a shop at Tallah village. “Now I am in no need to any partner to depend on and share my income,” Mahmoud says.
