The owner of Golden Fingers, Mr. Salama Mohamed Ahmed, a master barber and successful businessman, is shown supervising one of his apprentices, Mr. Sayed al-Sagheer Mohamed Abdel Hamid. Following training, Mr. Sayed returned to his village and became a self-employed barber. Mr. Salama continues to serve as both mentor and business adviser to his former apprentice. Mr. Sayed's training was arranged by the Enterprise-Based Training Programme (EBT) of the Coptic Evangelical Organisation for Social Services (CEOSS). The EBT programme is described in the CEOSS case study in Chapter II.
