At a young age Mr. Mahrous Bseiso sought to develop the land and infrastructure of Beersheba by committing to purchases of undeveloped land. Mr. Mahrous not only developed his own land, but also sought the land of others, particularly residents who did not have the financial stability to afford maintenance of the land or its development. In May of 1927, Mr. Mahrous assisted other financially troubled landowners with liens on their lands, in exchange for monetary loans. In this document which dates to over 90 years old, Mr. Bseiso acquired equitable title to the land of the borrower in exchange for Twenty Sa (measured in 3.24 kg), two English pounds, 24.5 Francs, and one Egyptian pound. The agreement further explains that Mahrous has legal authority to cultivate and develop the land as he pleases in exchange for the money borrowed. This historical document is witnessed and signed by heads of families and stamped with Palestinian issued stamps of the government. This historical artifact is a testament to the ownership and legally sanctioned transactions of residents in Beersheba Palestine.
