Domestic work represents a real market in Lebanon, segmented according to the national and ethnic origins of the worker. Zein El-Amin manages a maid agency. In a catalogue, he helps each client to choose the best candidate according to his or her needs.

In this business, the notion of a maid is utterly dehumanised and becomes a product.
