At the age of 15, Khalil Khoury started working to help his parents, as their financial condition wasn't good, and he had to work to secure his expenses and help his parents with household obligations.
He began working as an assistant to a Plumbing & Sanitary Maintenance Supervisor and soon became skilled in that profession and began to take his own workshops as customers began to ask him to do their work because of his skills and his low wages.
Khalil wanted to have his maintenance store so he could work at bigger workshops and expand his work so he began saving money for this purpose, but as soon as the war broke out in Syria, all his efforts were in vain because he was called for military service, and it lasted for nine difficult years, during which he faced the horrors and dangers of war.
however, during his holiday permissions, Khalil didn't hesitate to work and secure some money to help his parents in light of the bad conditions they were living in.
After he was released, Khalil returned to work, and his friend helped him buy simple tools to use at work, so he began to work hard to compensate for the lost years of his life.
he was full of determination to work and improve his living conditions, and despite all the obstacles such as lack of electricity and lack of money to buy new equipment, he continued to strive, hoping for an improvement in his situation one day.
this is when one of his friends told him to apply to the micro-projects program and he immediately applied for support in equipment, machinery, and the electric generator, which will constitute a great leap in his field of work and he will be able to receive larger workshops and work for more hours
Today, Khalil is thanking God that those nine years have been compensated, and he was given a new chance in life to develop his work and secure a better future.
