Young man establishes ‘mobile car washing machine’ project in Egypt

Like many other young people, Yehia obtained his university degree and decided to travel to the Gulf to build his future, moving from one company to another.
However, it was his "mobile car washing machine" that finally brought him the success he had dreamt of. 
In the beginning, he faced many challenges: "I travelled to Saudi Arabia after I graduated from the Faculty of Computer Science and I worked with many construction and real estate companies, before I decided to start my own business," he said.
"A Saudi businessman helped me and I worked on my project for three years after I obtained all the necessary government permits. I started with one car washing machine, and now the company has 15 cars serving three Saudi cities," he added.
"My problem, however, was that I was not serving my country. Also, the Saudi law prohibits foreigners from owning a company. Therefore, in 2015 I decided to come back to Egypt," Yehia said.
The mobile car washing machine is a small car that uses environmentally-friendly materials and reduces water consumption, unlike other regular car washing machines.
"It is possible to wash 10 cars with about 15 liters of water only, and no chemical products are used in the process. A waxy substance is used instead to make the cars shine," according to Yehia. 
"The service is quite successful in Egypt right now, especially in Maadi, Heliopolis, and Sheikh Zayed," he adds.
