Today, Mohssine is married and has two daughters in high school and one younger son. One of his daughters will be helping Mohssine help run his shop on Anou. Metal craft is something near and dear to Mohssine's heart. When he was young, he chose to learn his craft instead of going to school and does not regret his decision. The income he makes from his craft is primarily used to take care of his family. His day off is Friday, where he goes to the mosque and relaxes with his family. In the future, he hopes that Anou will improve his life and enlighten the lives of many more people through out the whole world.
